Lehigh Valley Railroad -1906A
Straight-up railroad ad shows the Black Diamond Express on America's Cleanest Railroad. I think they're advertising the use of anthracite coal, just as the Lackawanna did with the original Phoebe Snow. New York and Philadelphia to Buffalo and Niagara Falls. That's a pretty small engine and only four passenger cars. The photo of the Glen Summit Springs Hotel is oddly canted, as if the layout man were drunk at the time.
Published in an unidentified magazine in 1906.
