Description

By the 1930s, the railway system was hit hard by both the Great Depression and the increasing number of automobiles. The response was one of modernization. New streamlined trains hit record-breaking speeds. The wealthy were persuaded to take cross-country trips on the new diesel-powered passenger trains, while enjoying dining cars as elegant as any hotel. Relive the days when train travel was not just a method of transportation, but an escape from the pressures of the workaday world in these six vintage short subjects: "Rhapsody of the Rails," "Flight of the Century," "The Passenger Train "A Great Railroad at Work," "The Vanishing El," and "At this Moment." 1hr. 56min.
