Many railroads issued official postcards, and the Erie was no exception. The Erie Limited was used for a series showing car interiors and a loco view near Port Jervis. This is a view of one of the coaches.

Russ,
What is the time period of those postcards--late 40's, early 50's?

Russ, these are beautiful scenes! Gotta love 'em!

I love the "atmosphere" presented in these two scenes. It's a shame we can't still travel like that today.
