The original California Zephyr ran over the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad from Chicago to Denver, Colorado, the Denver and Rio grande Western Railroad between Denver and Salt Lake City, Utah, and the Western Pacific Railroad from Salt Lake City to Oakland, California.
This train was marked as the most beautiful passenger train as it ran through amazing rocky mountains. This train was marketed to families as a vacation unto itself. The Zephyrettes functioned as social directors, tour guides, babysitters and nurses in short they filled just about any role to ensure that the passengers had a memorial trip.
