The menu was used on a Pacific Railroad Society excursion to Yellowstone Park. Prepaid meals featured trout, lamb chops, and veal parmigiana. The sirloin steak is absent as the group evidently decided not to pay extra for that option, which (as this menu shows) cost about 30 percent more than the other meals.
