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!
