"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. Authors Donald J. Heimburger and Carl R. Byron bring to life this exciting time in America’s railroad history. This 200-page hardbound volume captures the fun of train travel when fashion-conscious rail lines crisscrossed the country with colorful cars and exquisite service."
