It's amazing that the Rio Grande Zephyr, with its classic F-units, domes and traditional diner, persisted more than a dozen years after Amtrak homogenized everything else! And, here it even includes its ex-PB steam generator car tucked in among the active locomotives. I managed to ride the real CZ (when it still ran on the WP,) the BN version and this iteration, plus I chased it in the summer of '82 and '83. Thanks for the beautiful Christmas card, Chris.

It would be better if the trains are red in color. I like this image.

Having ridden the California Zephyr many times, most recently this October from Sacramento to Salt Lake City and back, I can assure all it is the real Zephyr :) A beautiful picture of a classic train, thanks Chris!

I meant to say that I can assure all in here that Amtrak's California Zephyr is the real Zephyr too.

This surely shows how magnificent the scenery is on this line and how small the trains are in comparison to the canyon cliffs. Super shot, not to mention super cold!
