California

 

Who: Mary and Gib Gardner of Old Snow mass

 

Where: Amtrak station, Emeryville, Calif.

 

Out and about: We rode a special reincarnation of the original Vista-Dome California Zephyr train, which ran from 1949 to 1970 between Chicago and Oakland via Denver and Salt Lake City on the Burlington, Rio Grande and Western Pacific railroads. This splendid trip, from Reno to Emeryville on April 18, used seven of the passenger cars (coaches, sleepers, Vista-Dome lounges and observation, now privately owned) and one of the engines of the original California Zephyr.
