from the publisher:
"It is perhaps not surprising that an annual publication should focus at least some of its attention on notable anniversaries, and this edition of Passenger Train Annual does just that, with features marking the 70th anniverary of the City of New Orleans and other streamliners from the class of 1947.
The City of New Orleans • by Dave Pedersen - Illinois Central's homemade streamliner.
GO Transit at 50 • by John D. Thompson - Toronto's commuter agency reaches a milestone.
Trains of Genoa • by Sergio Vadora and Danila Mensi - A northern Italian sampler.
Amtrak's Western DNA • by Mike Schafer - An ancestral survey of Amtrak's Western trains.
Time Passages: New Trains of 1947 - The first bumper crop of postwar streamliners.
