New Haven's Comet by markkarvon New Haven's Comet by markkarvon
The Comet was a streamlined interurban train set manufactured by the Goodyear-Zeppelin Company in 1935 for the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. The train featured three cars and was double-ended so it could operate in both directions without having to turn the train at each destination. It initially went into service on a route between Boston, MA and Providence, RI. The train covered the route in 44 minutes and was advertised as "44 miles in 44 minutes". It was very fast regularly operating at speeds of 90 MPH. The train was clocked at over 110 MPH in an early test. The train was withdrawn from service in 1951 and scrapped. This print is a tribute to the New Haven Railroad's beautiful Comet.

Great series. The locos of the 30s through the 50s were works of art, weren't they? Such flair and imagination! Gorgeous.
