M.! The busiest moment of the fullest hour in the pulsating life of the splendid Chicago Union Station presents the striking spectacle of four great Burlington trains drawn up on contiguous tracks—steam up—personnel on the qui vive! It is doubtful that such a galaxy of crack trains is gathered together at one moment on any other railroad anywhere else in America. Every one of the four is a distinguished de luxe train—a thorobred stripped for action. At 5:30 the great Denver Limited moves, and in another minute is gone from view on its 1,000-mile flight to Denver and the Rocky Mountains. At 6:00 the Missouri Limited silently pulls away—headed for Kansas City and St. Joseph. With machine-like precision the Nebraska Limited departs at 6:15 for Omaha and Lincoln, followed at exactly 6:30 by the Minnesota Limited for St. Paul, Minneapolis and Northwest. Thus, in one hour , the Burlington starts 800 people—on business, on pleasure, on every sort of errand—to distant places which the genius of American railroading has brought close together. And this is but half the story of the Burlington's Chicago service. 10:30 this morning witnessed the departure of the Colorado Limited , and five minutes later the great North Coast Limited left for St. Paul, Minneapolis, Spokane, Seattle, Tacoma and Portland. At 11:00 o'clock tonight the famous Oriental Limited pulls out for St. Paul, Minneapolis and all the Pacific Northwest, followed at 11:30 by the Overland Express for Denver, the Royal Gorge, Salt Lake City and California. And so in the thirteen hours from 10:30 A. M. to 11:30 P. M., eight great flyers go out of the Chicago Union Station over the Burlington Route—headed West, Northwest, Southwest, EVERYWHERE WEST . Every train is really several trains. That is—the same Oriental Limited which leaves Chicago tonight for Seattle and Portland, makes its next start from here seven days later, and meantime another Oriental Limited leaves Chicago every night for seven more days. It is the same with the North Coast Limited . Eight editions of this train always on the road between Chicago and the North Pacific Coast. When the de luxe Denver Limited was inaugurated in June this year, four Denver Limiteds were born. There are four editions of the Colorado Limited and four of the Denver Overland Express ; two Nebraska Limiteds , two Missouri Limiteds , two Minnesota Limiteds . The eight peerless flyers are really thirty-four separate and distinct trains carrying more than 400 cars which are on the go every day—all the time, constituting the Burlington's regular Chicago service to and from Omaha, Lincoln, Denver, Kansas City, St. Joseph, St. Paul, Minneapolis, the North Pacific Coast, California—West, Northwest, Southwest— EVERYWHERE WEST .
