    Inthe famed California Zephyrs were introduced as the ultimate, vista-domed cruise train between Chicago and Oakland, in conjunction with the Rio Grande and Burlingtons Zephyrs book Pacific. All original equipment that had to be removed for such modifications should be properly tagged and safely stored, in case. The first part of the book introduces us to Zephyra's life at court and shows us the events that shape her into the woman she is yet to become. I used the Con-cor dome coach because I did not have four Kato models of the domes to complete the train, and because the and dome cars are very similar.

    The Zephyr set appeared in the American Flyer catalogs. Budd saw the Burlingtons Zephyrs book, efficient system in action, saw a major piece of his lightweight train puzzle fall into place, then approached GM about adapting their engine for rail propulsion. I added Evergreen corrugated styrene, and used Microscale decals on an E6 model from Lifelike. Initially, they were powered by A and B-unit shovelnose diesels, but later with newer units. And it certainly exploited this advantage as much as possible allowing Budd to become a major competitor against Pullman, as it was the only company producing flashy stainless steel equipment.

    The story would have felt more real if Zephyra would have had to work a little more for them. Powered by elegant EMC E5A and B units with stainless carbodiesthese were, suprisingly, Burlingtons Zephyrs book fully streamlined trains. Gilbert Companya new line of O scale trains moved into production phasing out the Zephyrs and previous O-scale products collectively known as "Chicago Flyer". As a result, only one other railroad ordered a copy of the Zephyrs. Movement of the equipment to the desired location would not be cheap, easy, nor without risk. Ensconced within its glassed enclosure, it should last forever, endangered only by too many touching fingers.
