"The very last word in transportation" - THOMAS A. EDISON Edison is speaking of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul. He had just experienced the delight of traveling through the American Rockies by electric power. In the smooth, smokeless and electrically driven flight of that incomparable train "The Olympian" across the mountains, he saw electricity's grandest application. Enjoying as you and every passenger must enjoy this pleasurable journey, he voiced the thought of that great body of accustomed travelers who regard the "Mil waukee" as the most progressive railroad in the world. The only line operating transcontinental trains by electric power The only line owning and operating its own sleeping cars between Chicago and Seattle-Tacoma The only line operating over its own rails all the way between Chicago and Puget Sound The shortest line from Chicago to Seattle- Tacoma and the Orient GEORGE B.
