Remarks & Notes 
The California Zephyr eases to a stop on 3rd Street, ending its 2,525 mile journey as families await the arrival of loved ones, excited children and other bystanders watch the event, most of them probably unaware that this great icon of transportation will be history in less than two years, or that their cars would one day be called classics for that matter.
