This poster advertises a "Lightning Express Train" leaving Kansas City at 11:30 a.m. daily and arriving at Pueblo, Colorado at 3 p.m. the next day; then on to Denver, arriving at 8:30 p.m. that day. It claims to be the only direct route to the San Jaun mines. It is also called, "The Tourists' Route", because it passes through the "Great Arkansas Valley."
