Pennsylvania Railroad's Trail Blazer
This postcard has an illustration of the Oservation-Buffet-Lounge car of the Pennsylvania Railroad's Trail Blazer. The back of the card has the Trylon and Perisphere symbol of the New York World's Fair (1939-1940) and advertises service "direct to World's Fair."
The Pennsylvania Railroad's Trail Blazer was a deluxe all-coach passenger train operated by the Pennsylvania Railroad that provided 17-hour service between Chicago and New York. Service began on July 28, 1939.
