Rediscover the golden age of railroad travel in America’s busiest region: the East. This 124-page edition recalls an era of optimism when luxurious trains transported passengers to the country’s leading cities including Boston, New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. Featured trains include Baltimore & Ohio’s Royal Blue, Norfolk & Western’s Powhatan Arrow, Boston & Maine’s Flying Yankee, Jersey Central’s Blue Comet, and more!

Timeless stories — penned by the best authors in the field — cover the following great trains:

  • 20th Century Limited — Considered the most luxurious passenger train in America, this New York to Chicago train was New York Central’s crown jewel.

  • Champion and Silver Meteor — These two stainless-steel streamliners whisked vacationers from the wintery Northeast to sunny Florida.
