In 1934, the Burlington Railroad’s Pioneer Zephyr became the first diesel-powered streamlined passenger train to begin regular service in the United States. The rural Midwest state of Nebraska played a major role in the Pioneer Zephyr’s technological achievements, beginning with its first run out of Lincoln. The stainless steel speedster had a service life of about 26 years, slightly over 14 them spent on runs originating in or passing through Nebraska. Filled with human interest stories, this is an account of the huge impact that a very historic train had on one state and its people.
