Riassunto: Union Pacific is America's most popular railroad, and certainly the best-known one, with a compelling history. The first line to create a transcontinental railroad link in 1869 with Central Pacific, UP was also the first to create a modern, streamlined passenger train. Sleek, quiet, powerful, fast the lightweight streamliner set new standards for luxury on the rails. This authoritative, lavishly illustrated history follows Streamliners from 1943 with the launch of the City of Salina right up to the ceding of passenger services to Amtrack in 1971.Award-winning rail author Joe Walsh examines the fleet of 'City' trains that followed the Salina, all connecting Chicago to their namesakes with revolutionary equipment, diesel motive power, and breakneck speed and schedules. In this work images detail the opulent furnishings and impeccable service that distinguished this premier passenger line - from uniforms, dinnerware, to the most exotic lounge cars ever built. In addition to detailed look at the trains, readers are treated to the different forms of motive power, rolling stock, and the unparalleled service. Dozens of black-and-white images and period color photographs depict the City of Portland, Denver, Los Angeles, san Francisco, and St Louis along with period advertisements and route maps to complete the full picture.
