The Art of the Streamliner

Overview

Overview

By the early 20th century, as the railroad became a vital means of moving people and goods, trains and locomotives became the focus of some of the world's finest mechanical engineers and industrial designers. From this increased attention arose perhaps the most elegant land-based form of transportation in human history: the streamlined train. Relive their glory through magnificent photographs of these cars, which show both their elegant interiors and their graceful shapes speeding across the countryside. Here are the ever-more luxurious rolling accommodations for the discriminating traveler, with increasingly spacious sleeper cars and dining rooms that came to resemble those in four-star restaurants. Written and researched by a team of veteran transportation historians and illustrated with more than 175 black-and-white and full-color pictures, this tribute honors not only the dazzling passenger cars, but also the legendary designers, and presents the gorgeous promotional brochures and posters used to entice passengers.

    Excellent book - what a view of the Streamliners!

    This is an excellent book - well researched and containing fantastic photographs and pictures from classic railroad books, brochures, and ads. I pick this book up alot and re-read and enjoy it.

    Streamliners in color

    An excellent and informative work about the rise and fall of the streamliner passenger train. The big plus are the many color photos and illustrations of the glorious trains.
