*California Zephyr Zephyrette History Project*
Request for Information from former Zephyrette, Cathy Moran

Former Zephyrette (train hostess on the California Zephyr) - Cathy Moran:

"My experiences on the Zephyr were right before it was placed out of service. I have a dear friend Rodna Walls Taylor who was a Zephyrette when it all started back in the 50's. We are working collaboratively to create a history of the Zephyrettes; since we are living history! We are in need of help from all California Zephyr riders, Zephyrettes, photographers, and historians to help us out in this project. We are looking for:

  • Pictures of Zephyrettes;

  • Current home/email addresses of any former Zephyrettes

  • Zephyrette stories you might know of;

  • Any Zephyrette or Zephyr memorabilia that you would be willing to share in a document with credit.

You may contact me through a special contact page at the website."
