Company artists provided much advertising material extolling the virtues of the new full dome equipment carried on the Empire Builder for Pullman passengers. This drawing is a sample of part of one of the full-color "on train" brochures.



The Public Relations Department of the Great Northern continued the company policy of providing superb photographic advertising for its passenger trains, and this photograph of the 1955 Empire Builder is a good example of the art. It shows the new Great Dome Empire Builder running along the southern boundary of Glacier National Park. Great views such as this were available from the four dome coaches, and were obvious attractions which the GN used to attract passenger patronage. Photograph from the Great Northern/Burlington Northern Archives.
