Amtrak Turbo 50
Title:  Amtrak Turbo 50
Description:  Three months after Amtrak began running trains, it sent United Aircraft TURBOTRAIN set 50/51 on a nationwide tour to show Americans what the future of passenger travel would look like. Things didn't quite work out the way Amtrak showed us, but here was Paul Oliver in font of power car 50 while the train was on display at New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal. The gold stripes on the train were actually black SCOTCHLITE, and the young woman on the left was wearing a purple SMILE A WHILE ON THE TURBOTRAIN sticker. The train had just arrived on the Southern Railway and left two days later on the Southern Pacific, and several of us got to ride it to Lafayette. Illinois Central coach 2504 had been built in October 1946 as Chicago & Eastern Illinois 463 VERMILLION TRAIL and was purchased by the IC in 1961.
