Weekend Event: Railways

To compete with CP's "Canadian" the Canadian National introduced "The Super Continental" on the same date as CP's "Canadian" although with smooth-side cars built by Canadian Car and Foundry and Pullman-Standard. It didn't have dome cars, either. Domes didn't appear on CN until they bought the Super Domes from the Milwaukee Road in c.1964.





Condolences to the Vine family.

One Day Event: Future as Predicted AND a weekend teaser!

American Locomotive Company (ALCO) two-page spread ad from the 40's about the future of train travel (separate pages for easier reading). This is also a teaser of this weekend's theme: all things train and railroads that I am honoured to host. I have LOTS of railway ads -- frieght, passenger, train travel, equipment, and supplies. Hopefully this will get some of you in that mindset.
