Budd 1940 Brochure

This brochure is almost exactly the same size as yesterday’s, and specifically mentions “the Budd exhibit at the World’s Fair,” which is probably shown on the cover image. Unlike yesterday’s, it mentions both the Silver Meteor and Champion, indicating it is from after December 1, 1939, when the latter train began service.

This brochure is also a bit broader in emphasis, as it discusses Budd’s innovations in the field of auto manufacturing, truck trailers, airplanes, and last and probably least, rayon-making machinery. Apparently, “the acid-resistant quality of stainless steel makes it an ideal metal for this type of equipment.”
