The 20th Century Limited debuted in 1902 as the New York Central's luxury train operating between New York and Chicago. It made its journey along the Hudson River and the shores of Lake Erie on the smooth "water level route." The railroad would roll out a crimson carpet to welcome passengers to the train, giving rise to the phrase the "red carpet treatment." This poster image was created in 1938 by Leslie Ragan to promote the 16 hours travel in the lap of luxury.
