The 20th Century Limited Over The Years


More from Mark Tomlonson on June 15 in NYC History

June 15, 1902 The New York Central & Hudson River Railroad’s “20th Century Limited”, “a train a century ahead of its time” according to contemporary accounts, begins operation. The average speed is 49 mph between New York and Chicago resulting in a 20-hour journey.

June 15, 1938 The “20th Century Limited” is equipped with new streamlined equipment and a new schedule that averages 60 mph.

The 1938 picture again.

Wonder how many times these updates happened?

Most of my knowledge is on this WebSite
