Touted as Americas most talked-about train the California Zephyr took travelers from Chicago to Oakland/San Francisco in style. It was the flagship of the CB&Q, DRGW and Western Pacific and was known for the spectacular scenery of the Rockies as seen through its domes.

Excellent DVD. Covered a lot of information not found on other DVD's. Great soundtrack at the end.

Some great stories of the famous Zephyr from people that actually rode it or worked on it. This is not a video of runbys and such, but of a look at the people associated with it. It's a fascinating story, and this video is very nicely polished. It's also one that may not bore your non-railfan friends :)

I have another pre-Amtrak California Zephyr video, which runs from Chicago to Oakland. This video, however, shows just anything you want to see, including the Amtrak California Zephyr.
