America by Rail 2018 Wall Calendar

Before the days of interstate highways, trains were the mainstay of American long-distance travel. Going by train was a relatively affordable luxury and vacationers took to the rails in droves. A trip on a train offered passengers unparalleled views of the country, from the charming coastal towns of New England to the majestic Colorado Rockies, California Redwoods, and Yellowstone Park.

Private rail companies served various regions and in their competition to attract riders, the companies hired accomplished artists to create posters that would convey the excitement of trains and the beauty of the destinations they served. These posters survive today as snapshots of the glory days of traveling America by rail.
