My blog is about postcards, postcard collecting, my postcard collection, and my "vintage thingies."
The brightly colored, orange and red, Million Dollar Southern Pacific "Daylight" speeds daily along the magnificent California Coast line between San Francisco and Los Angeles — the route of the Missions. No rail trip anywhere, unfolds more thrilling scenery — following the very edge of the Pacific Ocean for more than a hundred miles.The Coast Daylight ran behind steam until January 7, 1955, long after most streamliners had been powered by diesel. The next postcard shows the Coast Daylight powered by diesel locomotives on its daily journey between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The train offered "a picture-window view of sun, sand, and surf for 113 miles."
