U.P. 4-8-8-4 Big Boy Steam Locomotive - Just months before Pearl Harbor, the American Locomotive Company delivered the first Big Boy to the Union Pacific Railroad. The UP's Department of Research and Mechanical Standards had designed the locomotive for a specific task: to pull a 3600-ton train unassisted over the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.                   continue reading

NYC Empire State Express Passenger Set - Before it was eclipsed by the Twentieth Century Limited, the Empire State Express was the New York Central’s flagship passenger run. In 1893, it was the Empire State Express, led by a hot rod 4-4-0 with outlandishly large drivers, that became the first man-made vehicle to exceed 100 mph and made the New York Central famous around the world.                   continue reading Illinois Central E-6 Diesel Passenger Set - The first generation of road diesels found its form in 1937, when the initial E-units, built for the B&O, inaugurated the classic "covered wagon" cab unit design that would last for two decades on both freight and passenger diesels.                    continue reading

New York Central E-6 Diesel Passenger Set - The earliest E-units were each virtually custom made, with less than 20 units produced of models EA through E5. With the E6, EMD settled on a standardized passenger unit and began to produce it in large quantities.                                 continue reading Milwaukee Road E-6 Diesel Passenger Set - Starting in 1939, before the war effort arrested production of all passenger diesels in 1942. The E6 was the last passenger diesel to sport the beautiful, rakish, streamlined EMD nose so characteristic of the 1930s.         continue reading

Southern E-6 Diesel Passenger Set - The earliest E-units were each virtually custom made, with less than 20 units produced of models EA through E5. With the E6, EMD settled on a standardized passenger unit and began to produce it in large quantities.                     continue reading PCC Electric Street Car - As the U.S. entered the Great Depression in 1929, the nation's trolley systems were already in a depression of their own. Ridership was plummeting as automobiles and an improving road system stole droves of passengers away from the rails.                   continue reading

40' Double Door Box Car - While usually referred to as an insulated boxcar, the prototype for this car, according to the Association of American Railroads (AAR), is technically a bunkerless refrigerator car, class RBL.                           continue reading 50' Modern Box Car - With its slogan of "Next Load, Any Road!", Railbox strove to minimize empty backhauls and keep loaded cars flowing wherever needed, throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada.                  continue reading
