You know what this isa shipment of new automobiles. For many years Great Northernand lots of other railways-hauled fewer and fewer automobiles. But there's been a change. You should see us now. We load up to 15 autos on tri-level carriers-sort of piggyback-and away we roll!

And GN's schedules get those new cars to their destinations in a hurry.

Which gets me into a favorite subject: Great Northern's Coordinated Shipping Services. That's "train talk" for the way we team up freight car, truck and piggyback.

For example: ship some goods into Minnesota or Montana by freight car. Then Great Northern trucks I will take over for delivery to outlying points. Or use a combination of piggyback and truck.

Whatever you ship (from perishables to pig iron) . . . wherever you ship (from the Great Lakes to the great Pacific Northwest) . . . however you ship (LCL, carload or trailerload) . . . Great Northern's

Coordinated Shipping Services put you on the right track. And-at mighty advantageous rates! Check with your local GN freight representative.

Want you to meet a good friend of mine-Al Haley.

Al's our chief on geological affairs an expert on things like lignite, oil and iron ore.

He's a regular genius at finding a gravel pit where no one thinks there's one around. And you should hear his talk on the Williston Basin chemical complex. ("Complex"? Nojust crystal clear!)

Ask Al Haley about sulfur, or natural gas, or olivine-anything that comes out of the ground. (Same address as mine. See below.)

How about your next business trip-or family vacation?

Be a great time to rediscover the joys of train travel aboard GN's incomparable Empire Builder. The sight-seeing's superb from high-up in Great Dome seats. And so is the comfort-in reclining, leg-rest coach seats or spacious Pullman quarters. Marvelous food and service, too. Runs daily each way between Chicago and Seattle-Portland via St. Paul-Minneapolis and Spokane. A great way to go!
