Over the course of 15 years, author Mark Wegman researched original railroad company drawings, records, and even paint chips to render 180 color profiles, front view, top views, and interior layouts representing the steam, diesel, and electric locomotives and the passenger cars of more than 40 of the most celebrated golden-age "name" trains across the nation.

Wegman's drawings are accompanied by histories of each train and dozens of period photographs, postcards, menus, luggage stickers, and print ads. The result is a lavishly appointed journey back in time to the zenith of the US passenger train travel.

Loved it! Often you only see these trains in black and white photos. It was great to see what they looked like in colour.
