                                         A MAJOR MISSION

A major mission of Zephyr Route is to restore SILVER VIEW to operate in 
charter rail service. All net profits from bookings of Zephyr Route Journeys and 
sales of fundraiser items will be channeled to the SILVER VIEW RESTORATION PROJECT.

SILVER VIEW was built by the Budd Company in 1947 for The Burlington
Route Vista Dome Twin Cities Zephyrs. It provided first class parlor car
service, and was the signature car to one of the most handsome trains ever built. 

When restored, SILVER VIEW will become the premier railcar of ZEPHYR
ROUTE service for current and future generations who seek quality rail
