Dear Fellow Railfan,

In an effort to attract wealthy businessmen and land developers, designers of the Orange Blossom Special – an east-coast passenger train – attempted to make its service unmatched in high-end luxury: each stop saw the addition of fresh-cut flowers, pies and cakes were baked on board from scratch, and every trek included $3,500 worth of wine, liquor, and champagne! Our cover print, available as either a metal or plank-wood sign, celebrates the extravagant train as it appeared in the 1920s. The rest of our summer catalog features an interesting selection of new rail and automotive-themed merchandise including a roster of 0-6-0 locomotives (page 10), train artwork on affordable metal signs (page 25), and colorful HO scale vehicles (page 40). So, pick your favorites and call us toll free at 800-261-5922, visit HistoricRail.com, or mail in the order form provided. Thanks for shopping! – Greg Herrick On the Cover:

“Orange Blossum Special” Signs

David Tutwiler. Known to some as the “most luxurious winterseason train ever devised by man,” the Orange Blossom Special – operated by Seaboard Air Line Railroad – ran service from New York to Miami from the 1920s through the 1950s. With a branch of oranges hanging appropriately overhead, the opulent train billows smoke as it chugs along during its first decade of operations.

Railroad Warning Signs Maintain order with these unique warning signs, each one a humorous reminder of appropriate behavior while riding the rails! Includes mounting holes.
