Description

The origins of the Great Northern Railroad came from the old Minneapolis & St. Cloud and their route to the Pacific Northwest. The route took a line through the Rocky Mountains of Montana and an area that was later to become Glacier National Park. The Great Northern assisted the government in the development of this park which provided the road with its herald, the Rocky Mountain goat.

One of the best ways to see the landscape was to take the passenger train called the Empire Builder from Chicago to Seattle and Portland. The streamlined version of this famous train ran the first passenger cars ordered from Pullman-Standard for post-war delivery. These cars were designed to have beauty and gaiety fro all to enjoy. Interiors were based on the colorful motifs of the Black Foot Indians and included murals and paintings done by renowned western artists. The best way to describe this train and what it meant to the Great Northern was started by John Budd, a President of the Great Northern..."The world judges the railways by their passenger services, if this is the window through which we are viewed, we must wash it and shine it, or else cover it up with a dark shade".
