Union Pacific Railroad Passenger Trains City Fleet

In 1934, Union Pacific premiered the first lightweight, streamlined passenger train, calling it “Tomorrow’s Train Today.” The tiny brown-and-yellow speedster offered hope for America’s future during the Great Depression. Later renamed City of Salina, the train was the beginning of Union Pacific’s City Fleet of streamliners including the City of Los Angeles, City of San Francisco, City of Portland, City of Denver and Challenger, departing from Chicago and serving all the West. Maps, timetables, travel brochures, and advertising are featured. Softcover, 128 pages, 10 x 8 1/2", 127 b/w photos.
