Overview

"America is a land of wonders," famed French visitor Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in 1835, "in which everything is in constant motion." Railroads have been a prime means of seeing those wonders since well before 1869, when the linkup of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific lines initiated the era of coast-to-coast train service. The posters in this calendar, works of art as well as advertisements, celebrate the romance of exploring America's seashores, deserts, plains, and mountains by rail.
