When World War II came to an end in 1945, America was on the verge of an unprecedented economic boom that carried over to its vast rail transportation system.

Railroads placed orders for new streamlined passenger trains. Passengers wanted new, fashionable trains with sleek cars and locomotives. In addition, steam was out, diesels were in.

Railroads saw good times coming and they prepared well for them. This 200-page colour book features 335 photographs in a 10 x 10”hardback volume. Covers numerous name trains.
