San Francisco Zephyr route guide, 1975.

Multicolor printed paper route guide issued in December 1975 for the San Francisco Zephyr. Guide offers brief descriptions of cities and towns along the route, as well as a fold-out map. From the Ann Owens Collection. Between May 1971 and June 1972, the Chicago-San Francisco/Oakland route was covered by two trains: the daily Denver Zephyr (Chicago-Denver) and the thrice-weekly City of San Francisco (Denver-San Francisco/Oakland). In mid-1972, the route became daily and was rebranded the San Francisco Zephyr.
