While specifically interested in the Silver Streak Zephyr which is only covered in one chapter, the book covers the history of CB&Q named passenger trains from the original Pioneer Zephyr to the final days of the Zephyrs just before the AmTrak takeover.
Each named train get at least a mention and there are many good photos and diagrams showing the trains and their layout.
I used to book to verify the accuracy of the train models I work on and I'm pleased with the amount of detail present in the book.
The writing is good and readable and covers everything from the reasons behind the various trains to what it was like to ride on one.
The book arrived quickly and in perfect, i.e. new, condition even though the price was about 25% of the current list price. I could not be more pleased with the entire transaction.
