Daylight, U. S. A.

Daylight was a passenger train originally run by the Southern Pacific Railroad (SP) between the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, via SP's coast line. In the eyes of many the "most beautiful passenger train in the world," it featured a stunning red, orange, and black color scheme. The streamlined Daylight began running in March, 1937. The Daylight continued to run behind steam until January 7, 1955, long after most streamliners had been powered by diesel.
