The 20th Century Limited, U.S.A

The 20th Century Limited was an express passenger train operated by the New York Central Railroad from 1902 to 1967, during which time it would become known as a "National Institution" and the "Most Famous Train in the World". In the year of its last run, The New York Times said that it "...was known to railroad buffs for 65 years as the world's greatest train". The train traveled between Grand Central terminal in New York City and LaSalle Street Station in Chicago along the railroad's famed "Water Level Route". The supper fast journey in 16 hours between the two cities catered to the business travelers.
