Wheels a-Rolling - 1948/1949 Chicago Railroad Fair DVD
In 1948 and 1949, the railroad industry combined to produce the Chicago Railroad Fair. As a part of the Fair, there was a twice-daily pageant based on the history of American transportation. Significant historic events were related with a railroad background. Hundreds of actors participated and many of these were steam powered! Whether actual or a reproduction of the original, many ancient locomotives paraded before the crowds. Stevenson's Rocket, the Best Friend of Charleston, John Bull, the Atlantic and the Pioneer all were represented. Tom Thumb, Lafayette, the DeWitt Clinton, William Mason and the Minnetonka performed. The fastest steam engine, New York Central's No. 999, the Lincoln Funeral Train, the Burlington's Pioneer Zephyr and then modern diesels also participated.
