I love collecting brochures introducing (then)┬ánew trains. I just got this one for the Baltimore & Ohio’s Columbian. It is circa 1949 and the train, with modern diesels and new Strata Dome cars, served Chicago and the East. You will notice one of the cities served was Akron. I already had a dining car menu from the train so I am attaching that, too. I rode Amtrak’s Capitol Limited before the Superliner age. The train had dome cars. The only way to go.
