This Movie Is About.
The Silver Streak is a 1934 film loosely based on the record-setting "dawn-to-dusk" run of the Pioneer Zephyr on May 26, 1934. The original Zephyr trainset was used for the exterior shots in the film, while interior scenes were filmed on a sound stage in Hollywood. For the film, the "Burlington Route" nameplate on the train's nose was replaced with one that read "Silver Streak".
One of the film's promotional items was a small book called The Story of the Silver Streak which was illustrated with black and white stills from the film.In 2006 Con-Cor International, Ltd. produced a model of the Pioneer Zephyr. A limited number (350 HO scale and 250 N scale) of these bore the nameplates of the Silver Streak from the motion picture instead of the standard Burlington Route nameplates.
