This is the face of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy in 1966 – proudly competent and committed to the best possible passenger service. On April 9, the first section of the Denver Zephyr has paused at the throat of 38th Street Yard, waiting for a track to clear at Denver Union Station. The conductor and trainman have opened the top half of the Dutch door to enjoy the Colorado sunshine after an overnight trip across the Great Plains. Their pride in their profession is evident: crisp maroon ties, neatly groomed uniforms, Burlington lapel pins, and on their jacket sleeves, stars and bars indicating years of service. A lot of pride behind those emblems. The Denver Zephyr is, at this point, the way to get to Denver by train, still a money-maker for the railroad and the choice for every knowledgeable traveler.
