Moonlight Serenade
On a frigid night, one of the Burlington Route’s awesome 0-5 class Northerns races along the Mississippi River on its speedy run between the Twin Cities and Chicago. The train is now following the Mississippi River and life doesn’t get any better than relaxing in the warm comfort of the lounge car, while mile after mile of breathtaking views flash by. Outside, the full moon shimmers on “Old Man River” and all seems right with the world.
