The seasoned traveler goes by train. For real travel comfort! Be specific -- say "Union Pacific." Small illustrations show how this unaccompanied guy (probably on business) has a fine time, and arrives in sunny California alert and happy. At this point the railroads had just started to realize they were in trouble competing with automobile travel. Published in an unidentified magazine in 1946.
