Summary

This thoroughly revised and expanded edition chronicles the glory years of perhaps the finest passenger rail operation in U.S. history. Passengers coming and going from Chicago, St. Louis, Boston, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Detroit, and New York City aboard the "Great Steel Fleet" were assured state-of-the-art service and environs. An engaging text and photographs, virtually all of which have never before been published, examine these trains and the postwar rennaissance and ultimate twilight of the New York Central. New material also includes a complete roster of the railways postwar trains.
