On February 12, 1934, Union Pacific premiered the M-10000, the first lightweight, streamlined passenger train, calling it Tomorrowミs Train Today. The tiny brown-and-yellow speedster offered hope and promise for Americaミs future during the Great Depression. Later renamed City of Salina, the train was the beginning of Union Pacificミs City Fleet of streamliners including the City of Los Angeles, City of San Francisco, City of Portland, City of Denver and Challenger, departing from Chicago and serving all the West. Union Pacific system map, timetables, travel brochures, and advertising are featured. "
