Flying Yankee Diesel Electric Streamliner Train 4"x6" Print

Regular price $10.00 Sale

The Flying Yankee was a diesel-electric streamliner built in 1935 for the Maine Central Railroad and the Boston and Maine Railroad by Budd Company and with mechanical and electrical equipment from Electro-Motive Corporation. It was also the name of a passenger train, the third streamliner train in North America after the Union Pacific Railroad's M-10000 and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad's Pioneer Zephyr; the Flying Yankee was, in fact, a virtual clone of the latter, except that it dispensed with the baggage/mail space to seat 142 in three articulated cars.[1]It ceased passenger service in 1957 and the train is now owned by the state of New Hampshire, which has plans to open it to public viewing.
