Need ACL or FEC Photos - can someone help? : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hello all,

I am currently designing a 36"x24" full color poster that I intend to print. The poster is called "The Champion" based on the old streamliner passenger trains from the 50's that ran on FEC's rails. Both ACL and FEC had a "Champion". FEC's was red and yellow, while ACL's was purple and silver.

I need a quality (professional) 8x10 photographic print, 2.25 film or 4x5 transparency featuring a close up - side view of an "E" unit from either the FEC or ACL "Champion". I will give full photographic credit on the poster and will discuss costs involved with obtaining a print.

I will also e-mail a JPEG file of the current poster design so that one might see how the photo will be used.

I would greatly appreciate any iput anyone of you might have to offer.

Look in Seth Bramson's book Speedway to Sunshine. It may have pictures you need. You can write him on the SERAILS list.

Hello Pete, Check Larry's recent book on passenger service, as well as Welch's Streamliner book. The Champion was not a separate train in each railroad. It was a train (trainset) run by four railroads, and had equipment from each; Pennsy, RF&P, ACL, and FEC. What engine was at the point was not important. There are even nice shots of the Champ being pulled by a GG1. Pick your location, and check those historic photos. Best wishes, Marc
