This is a May 1939 brochure about the route, schedule and scenic highlights of GN's Seattle to Spokane train, The Cascadian.

This local made all the stops on its leisurely 10 hour journey across Washington State and was discontinued in 1959.  I understand this particular brochure is rather rare, so I present it here for all to enjoy.
