This is the first volume of a two book series featuring in depth the passenger operations of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad. This Volume covers the Flyers, the Shovel Nose Zephyrs operating between 1930 and 1947, prior to the Domeliners arrival. There are many actual Q passenger consists from the author's personal files.
