Rose Bowl Special

From our collection of Railroad Memorabilia ...



On this day 71 years ago, the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team had completed their 1940 regular season with an 8 - 1 record and they were headed to their very first bowl appearance in the granddaddy of them all ... the Rose Bowl. The Athletic Department of the University of Nebraska arranged travel for the team from Lincoln to Los Angeles on special trains. Here we have the dinner menu prepared by the Burlington Railroad for the special occasion. Be sure to click on the pictures for a full size view, easier to read and catch the details.


Did you notice that for the Burlington Select Dinner the "Price Opposite Entree Is Cost of Complete Meal". How about a Grilled Dinner Steak and all the trimmings for $1.50?

Of course, a la Carte was also available ...


The back cover has some nice info on the Burlington Route trains.


Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
