Railroads At Work - 1939

"Who has not thrilled at the sound of a train whistle? Whose pulse has not quickened at the sight of a limited streaming through the night. What boy, or grown man, has not come to the crossing to watch the last freight go by and count the endless string of cars? All these thrills of a lifetime are now bound up in the model show, RAILROADS AT WORK."

This model train layout at the 1939 World's Fair was 160 feet wide and 40 feet deep. It featured over 3500 feet of O gauge track, 500 pieces of rolling stock and 50 locomotives. Now visit the show, by way of the scans of an original Souvenir Program.
