During the first half of the 20th century, before automobiles became affordable and highways stretched coast to coast, long-distance train travel was both a practical choice and a relatively inexpensive luxury. Accomplished artists ensured the rail industry’s success through the posters they created depicting enticing scenery and celebrating the romance and comfort of train travel. The 12 rail posters featured in this calendar glorify both the speeding locomotive and a variety of grand destinations, including US national parks and major cities.
