CUSTOM-MADE TRAINS I Here are three completely differ ent trains. The Pennsylvania's low slung, lightweight tubular train. The New Haven's new train, in which every car propels itself. The Santa Fe's Hi-Level cars in the new El Capitan. All go in service this year. Common to all of them, however, is the strength and safety of their stainless steel construction, found in all railway cars built by Budd. Each has been built to meet a special need. For the Pennsylvania, lighter weight. For the New Haven, faster schedules . .. speeds up to 110 miles an hour. For the Santa Fe, to provide a better view with better riding comfort and transport more passengers with fewer cars. They demonstrate the ability of Budd to envision needs and apply imagina tive engineering to meeting them. The Budd Company, Philadelphia 32.
