Most American towns and cities once boasted a train station; during the first half of the twentieth century, train travel was both practical and a relatively affordable luxury. High-quality advertising brought business and vacation travelers on board—gorgeous posters depicting enticing scenery and touting the romance, comfort, and speed of train travel. The twelve vintage posters reproduced here glorify both the speeding locomotive and a variety of grand destinations, including US landmarks, resorts, and major cities.
