Richly illustrated with over 200 photos, this book tells the story of railroad streamliners, from their early days as short little articulated speedsters to their halcyon years as 20-car "cities on wheels"--Places that were going somewhere. And it also tells a story of a time of individuality, when streamliners reflected the personality of the regions they served.
