With the advent of "Jet Age" travel in the 1960s, the railroads would try anything to hold on to their share of the transportation pie. In this case, the Northern Pacific Railway added stewardess' like "Sue".
The service on these trains like the North Coast Limited was top-notch to say the least. But it was not to be. We all know what happens next. So here we take a look back at the way it was... on trains. ENJOY!
"Travelers Rest" for which this de luxe car was named, was a favorite campsite of explorers Lewis and Clark.
The Lewis and Clark Traveller's Rest Buffet Lounge car, designed by Raymond Loewy, is just one of the extras on the Vista-Dome North Coast Limited. Stewardess service is another extra on this famous transcontinental streamliner.
Sue the stewardess says: Plan your next trip on Northern Pacific's Vista-Dome North Coast Limited. It's the train that makes travel fun again.
