Southern Pacific Sunset Limited publicity painting, c. 1950


The drawing is reproduced here from Southern Pacific’s “Wonderful Ways West” booklet, which features all their trains, although this painting saw wide use. A copy of it hung in the Pomona, California, Southern Pacific station, I remember. The Sunset Limited got its own booklet from SP’s publicity people, and I’ll post it here eventual. Next time I post I’ll include the pages of “Wonderful Ways West” that cover the Sunset, including its diner, lounge, and coffee shop cars.


I also blog “Through My Eyes” at and contribute to the blogzine Late Last Night Books at
