"Everywhere West" 

 

With its historic roots going back to the pre-Civil War period when trains west of the Mississippi River remained a relative novelty, the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (commonly known simply as "The Burlington", "Burlington Route" or the "Q") seemed destined to become a strong, profitable railroad.

During the mid-19th century, the railroad's earliest predecessor had established through service to Chicago and then spent the next several decades rapidly expanding. Its slogan, "Everywhere West" was quite befitting for this classic Midwestern railroad.

While the CB&Q did operate many secondary, agricultural branches it also boasted important through corridors to the Twin Cities, Denver, Kansas City, Omaha, southern Montana, and even reached the Gulf Coast! The Burlington was close with the communities it served and became a beloved symbol of the bold spirit of the American railroads.

For your prized Grand Cru or your everyday bottle of table wine, we are pleased to offer this historic Vintage Silverplate Wine Bottle Coaster once used aboard the great trains of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad. Produced by the venerable Gorham silversmiths of Rhode Island in the pleasing weight of classic railroad silver, the interior of the coaster is lined in protective felt.


Strictly limited quantities (at listing, a total of two coasters are available) and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. Measures 5.25" in diameter x 2" H. Please note, originally the piece was used for some other purpose on the railroad, but makes for a handsome bottle coaster.
