The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (CB&Q) Railroad decided to make a new sleek passenger train that used a diesel-electric power plant, streamlined design, and lightweight stainless steel. It was fast, sleek, and efficient. The result was the Burlington Zephyr, renamed the Pioneer Zephyr in 1936. On 26 May 1934, the Zephyr made a 1015-mile speed record run from Denver to Chicago.
