The Golden State Passenger Train was a cooperative effort among three major railroads to provide transcontinental luxury rail service. The Rock Island and Southern Pacific initiated “the world’s most luxuriously equipped train in the world” in 1902 with 68 hour service from Chicago to Los Angeles.

After dieselization of the Golden State in 1946, which reduced the travel time to 48 hours, the Pennsylvania Railroad provided Pullman through service from New York to Chicago. Although Pennsy’s participation ended in 1951, the Rock Island and Southern Pacific continued Golden State service until 1968.

This gleaming red and silver train features great pulling Alco Diesel with a horn and three matching passenger cars. Here is a perfect beginning for a transcontinental railroad in your own home.
