Dream Trains II explores the exciting decade after World War II when the railroads introduced fleets of colorful new streamliners. Thanks to hundreds of new cars and locomotives, operating on fast and frequent schedules, American rail passenger service had never been better. Highway and airline competition put an end to this golden age of travel, but it comes alive again in Dream Trains II.

Explore the last heroic attempt by railroads to win back passenger business through insightful stories and features such as:
• City of St. Louis – One UP streamliner’s niche in the postwar passenger scene
• The California Zephyr – Why “America’s most talked-about train” had to die
• Twin-engine Racehorses– A hogger recalls running EMD’s ultimate passenger diesel, the E unit
• Photo Gallery – Dazzling images of streamliners from the Dream Trains era
• And much more
