2 Train Histories Added

November 8, 2015

I have just posted histories of two early Amtrak train names, the Denver Zephyr and City of San Francisco. These names were dropped early in Amtrak’s history and were predecessors of today’s California Zephyr. To find these histories, look under “Trains and Routes” in the pages section on the far right margin. Also new under “Trains and Routes” is a history of the Lake Shore Limited. Additional train histories will be posted in the coming weeks and months.
