Coach interior view of C,B & Q 1934 Pioneer Zephyr streamlined passenger train. The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.

This is an interior view of the coach section.
I took this photo in August of 1984 on a family outing to the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The train is the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroads famouse 1934 Pioneer Zephyr passenger train. This 3 unit articulated fluted stainless steel streamliner, was in service until 1960. It was donated to the museum shortly after retirement. This is what the passengers saw while riding onboard. The patriotic bunting was in honor of the Zephyr's 50th aniversary, wich was a special event entitled "A celebration of railroading". Me and My family enjoyed it.
