20th Century Limited

Advertising the New York Central's 20th Century Limited New York-Chicago luxury express train in 1948. Henry Dreyfuss designed every aspect of the trains stunning new look in 1938. He even designed the red carpet (lower right) that passengers walked over to board and leave the train, introducing the phrase "the red carpet treatment". Airlines eventually caused the decline of the train and it was discontinued in 1967.
