18 TEXAS ALMANAC.-1943-44.
Piercing the night...the headlight
of a great locomotive is a symbol
of America's moving strength.
Greatest traffic loads known to

- are being moved night and

job - to help bring back the
lights again, all over the world.

revenue lower than at any time in
the past 24 years-less than one cent
for hauling a ton of freight one mile.
