The Streamliner Way to Florida

This 1962 brochure advertises several Seaboard streamliners: the Silver Meteor, Silver Star, and Palmland from New York to Florida; the Silver Comet from New York to Atlanta and Birmingham; and the Gulf Wind from Jacksonville to Chattahoochee, Florida on the Seaboard and onto New Orleans on the Louisville & Nashville. While the Silver Star left New York in the morning and the Silver Meteor left mid-afternoon, the Palmland left in the evening, allowing a full business day in New York but arriving in southern Florida in the middle of the night.
