The Passenger Experience: 1940 – 1960
February 1, 2020 – January 3, 2021
Fuller Hall

Created by the National Railroad Museum®, The Passenger Experience: 1940 – 1960 highlights many of the innovations railroads made to attract travelers. This exclusive exhibit includes uniforms from railroad service workers such as the Harvey Girls and the Zephyrettes, a replica of a railroad bar, vintage advertisements,  railroad china, and more. Giving Museum patrons a glimpse of what passengers experienced, it also examines how the railroads fought to maintain service during a period of time when the public increasingly began to prefer automobiles and airplanes to traditional train travel.
