The route of the California Zephyr covered 2,525 miles and took an average of two and a half days to complete. The CB&Q handled the train from Chicago to Denver, Colorado, where it was then handed over to the D&RGW. The D&RGW would then handle it until reaching Salt Lake City, Utah, where it would be taken over by the WP for its final leg into California. Scheduling intentionally placed the trains in the grandeur of the Feather River and Rocky mountains during daylight hours, while the Nevada deserts and plains states were crossed at night. This practice allowed passengers the most breath-taking views of the route during the day time. Each railroad contributed cars to the CZ, lettered for the participating roads. Even the Pennsylvania contributed a sleeping car, which we will also make available.

The California Zephyr was the train that became known as the “Silver Lady.” The CZ was the grandest–and thus the most famous–way to reach the Golden State and the west. Join Broadway Limited Imports, as we remember one of the all-time premier trains with our upcoming HO Scale models, which will include the stainless steel cars and locomotives, all decorated and complete with interior detail, lighting, underbody appliances plus of course our now famous sound-equipped locomotives. BLI’s Zephyrs are the most desirable California Zephyrs ever produced.
