"Classic Streamliners Photo Archive The Trains and the Designers

By John Kelly. The Streamlined Era began in the 1930s, when American industrial designers created a whole new class of trains with names like Rocket, Mercury, and Zephyr - names that implied speed, comfort, and modernism. The trains were shaped from sleek stainless steel and featured smooth surfaces, flowing curves and bullet shapes. Almost as famous as the trains themselves were the industrial designers who styled them: Henry Dreyfuss, Raymond Loewy, Otto Kuhler and the Electro Motive Division styling team. For the industrial designer, no object was as exciting as the streamlined passenger train.

This book features the streamliners designed by Raymond Loewy for the Pennsylvania Railroad, Henry Dreyfuss for the New York Central, Otto Kuhler for the Milwaukee Road and the B&O, and the Electro Motive Division styling team."
