Classic American Streamliners
Gorgeous archival photographs combine with original brochures, time tables and menus to illustrate the great story of the streamlined trains that reigned supreme from the 1930s through the 1950s. Union Pacifics City of Salina, Santa Fes Chiefs and Rock Islands Rockets are among the many streamliners featured. Filled with everything pertaining to streamlined trains including their development, rolling stock, motive power, designs, operations, and appointments. Fabulous!

A must-have addition to anyone fascinated by and/or mourning the death of the Golden Age of Railway Travel in the United States. I only caught the tail-end of the era and it was magnificent even though service (I was told by my grandparents and parents) was nothing like it had been in the mid-1950s. I thoroughly recommend it even if it just conjures "shadows" of the past for those did ride them and for those who never had the chance to do so.
