The Train Of Tomorrow was a concept train built by General Motors to promote the sales of diesel locomotives by its Electro-Motive Division. It featured a newly crafted dome car, the brainchild of Cyrus R. Osborn, general manager of EMD at the time. Completed in 1947, the four-car train became a postwar symbol of American know-how and promised a bright future for the railroads. That same year the train began a 28-month tour of the United States and Canada, and then was sold to the Union Pacific, which put the cars into daily service. In the mid-1960s, the cars were sold for scrap and believed lost. This book restores the Train Of Tomorrow to its rightful place in history. It includes nearly 200 photographs, drawings, and documents, as well as the diary kept during its inaugural tour.
From the Publisher: "Ric Morgan's research and manuscript on the subject certainly support his claim that he is in love with the Train Of Tomorrow. He has compiled an extraordinarily detailed history of the Train Of Tomorrow in words and photographs." --William F. Howes, Jr.
