From the Publisher...

More than just a review of streamlined steam locomotives in North America, this lal new book examines the metamorphosis of the steam locomotive as passenger trains evolved from the traditional heavyweight limieds of the 1920s to the sleek streamlines of the 1930s, 1940s and early 1950s. Famous "Stream-Liners, " including the NYC's 1938 20th Century Limited and PRR's Broadway Limited, the Milwaukee Road's Hiawathas, B&O's Cincinnatian, Southern Pacific's Daylights, and Reading's vest-poker Crusader, are but some of the trains detailed from a motive-power perspective, as are the more home-grown locomotive strealining effforts undertaken by roads such as Fisco, Louisville & Nashville, Southern, Chesapeake & Ohio, Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Burlington and many others across the US and Canada. Streamliners pulled by conventional steam locomotives are also represented.
