California Zephyr Passenger Train 1950's Promotional Film

Thanks for posting this video.  It was nice to see well-maintained CB&Q E-units, D&RGW Alco-GE's, and WP F3's in charge of the Zephyr.  The scene where the dining car Steward de-bones the trout for the guest is not something we will ever see in an Amtrak dining car.  And the scenes of San Francisco at its best brought back fond memories of a California long gone.  And, of course, all the train passengers were nicely dressed.

It's good to get lost in the good things about '50's, briefly, now and then.
