If you look up "streamlined train" in the dictionary, this would be the illustration!

This photo gives my generation a glimpse of what these streamliners looked like back in the day. The quality of your decades old photos continues to amaze me. Great job, Bob.

thanks for sharing this and all your other photographic treasures, Bob. Being a two-year old at the time this photo was made, I missed out on experiencing it first-hand, but my oldest firstest memories of railroads are an IC passenger train at Homewood on a rainy day in 1964 or so. Fabulous stuff!
