For the first time, detailed coverage of the Union Pacific/Chicago & Northwestern passenger trains tells the entire story of this innovative line. Complete with coaches and tourist sleepers, the UP and C&NW in 1935 inaugurated a transcontinental train tailored to middle-class passengers. On its new line, UP provided stewardess-nurses, special women's coaches, distinctive dining on special china, lounges, and other amenities normally associated with the best first-class trains. Read how the trains expanded into a fleet, despite the soft passenger market.
