In US model Railroading, freight is king but one set of passenger rolling stock has been eagerly waiting; the California Zephyr set of Rolling stock by Broadway Limited Imports.

The route of the California Zephyr covered 2,525 miles and took an average of 2 1.2 days to complete. The CB&Q handled the train from Chicago to Denver, Colorado where it was then handed over to the D&RGW. The D&RGW would then handle it until reaching Salt Lake City, Utah where it taken over by the WP for its final leg into San Francisco, California.

The modern version of the Calfornian Zephyer operated by Amtrack continues to run daily between Chicago and Emeryville, California. A most impressive train it is too!
