Burlington Route served a large area, including the states of Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Wyoming, and New Mexico and Texas via subsidiary railroads. Its primary connections included Chicago, Minneapolis–Saint Paul, St. Louis, Kansas City and Denver. Because of this extensive trackage in the midwestern and mountain states, the railroad used the advertising slogans “Everywhere West”, “Way of the Zephyrs”, and “The Way West”. It merged with the Burlington Northern Railroad in 1970.

The book is in good condition.  There is minor shelf wear on the dust jacket.  The spine is intact, no missing or loose pages.  There are no marks or writings in the book.
