All Aboard for Glacier - The Great Northern Railway and Glacier National Park
by C. W. Guthrie
The main line of the Great Northern Railway stretched from St. Paul, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington. But it was the 60-mile stretch of rail that passed by the grandeur and breathtaking scenery of what would become Glacier National Park in Montana that lured people from all over the world to the conductor's call for ''all aboard.''
Glacier National Park and the Great Northern Railway became synonymous in the early twentieth century. Original photographs, posters, brochures, menus, time tables, postcards, and other rare promotional materials accompany a fascinating account of the creation and promotion of Glacier National Park by the Great Northern Railway as railroad barons raced west and competed for precious territory to expand their empires
