We've got your Slumber Number! & SANTA LOOK OUT!

Two images from New York Central Railroad's magazine ads of 1946, emphasizing train travel in luxury style.  NOT a contest entry.  Second image is very large, may load slowly. 

Way before Lindsay Wagner started hawking the Sleep Number bed, New York Central Railroad had our number - the "Water Level Route"
and the dramatic lines of a train swooshing along the Hudson Valley at night.  (pic courtesy of Period Paper, a great site).

New York Central Railroad, 1946
