2016 America By Rail Wall Calendar


Feats of engineering, family escapes, svelte women, scenic landscapes—all were among the imagery American railroad companies used to advertise during the first half of the twentieth century. Some posters featured the trains themselves, more or less prominently depending on the artist, but most were selling an experience that went beyond the locomotive. The companies hired accomplished artists to create their enticing posters, which survive today as snapshots of the glory days of American rail travel from the posh crowds in Atlantic City to the crisp air at Mt. Rainier.
