THERE IS - in the speed, com fort, safety and dependability of the modern American railroad train - something for each traveler especially to enjoy. You can do the thing you like to do, while you ride, almost with the same freedom and peace of mind that you would have in your own home. You know when you start out that you will get there on schedule. You know you will cover distances with the minimum of exertion, the maximum of ease. You know that whatever the weather or the route or the sea son, security and friendly service will attend you. These benefits of railroad travel have become so familiar they are taken for granted. What may not be so familiar, unless you have traveled by train lately, is the ex tent of the improvements made and the new features added in recent years. So next time when you have a trip tomake- andwanttomakeitin the pleasantest way possible-go by train and see for yourself. See how faster schedules, modern equipment, air-conditioning, and billionsput into heavier rails, safety signals and roadway maintenance, are keeping the American railroads out in front as the most reliable and progressive trans o portation system _NEW__ ,in the world !
