Fascinating history of the New York Central's streamlined train, The Mercury, which was introduced in 1936 and eventually connected Detroit, Chicago, Cincinnati, and Cleveland. Brought to life by noted industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss, the train was famous for its innovative and integrated design (everything from the exterior to the china) and was called The Train of Tomorrow when first introduced. With Cleveland's Union Terminal as its base, the train connected the cities until 1959 when diesels and new highways finally undercut its popularity. Illustrated throughout with black and white and a handful of color photos showing interior and exterior shots, as well as construction, dining service, passengers disembarking at Cleveland's Union Terminal, etc. Includes roster of equipment. With maps, schematic diagrams, timetables, and ads. 60 pages.
