Illinois Central Ticket Envelope

This undated ticket envelope advertises six streamliners: the all-coach City of New Orleans and all-Pullman Panama Limited, both Chicago-New Orleans; the City of Miami, which went Chicago-Birmingham on the Illinois Central and on to Florida on other roads; the Daylight and Green Diamond, both Chicago-St. Louis; and the Chicago-Iowa Land o’ Corn. By this time, the Green Diamond was no longer green but painted the same chocolate brown as other Illinois Central streamliners.
