On Board the UP

Here are some great 1950s postcards from The Union Pacific Railroad depicting interior views of some of their iconic streamlined "City" trains.

"Astra Dome" dining car on the "City of Los Angeles" Domeliner - Here's an unusual travel treat; the enjoyment of wonderful food, freshly prepared, while viewing the constantly changing scenery... the verdant valleys and rolling hills, palisades of vari-colored stone, and other typical western scenery.

The "City of Denver" Dining Car - When you board this sleek overnight Streanliner in Chicago or Denver, you're assured of a marvelous meal, graciously served, in the attractively appointed dining car. Traveling in Pullman or reserved Coach seat you arrive fully refreshed.

Pullman Rooms Offer Privacy and Comfort - You enjoy the comfort and facilities of a hotel room when you reserve sleeping car room space on Union Pacific trains. The touch of a button provides convenient "room service" by a thoughtful porter.
