A group of trailers are being lined up and loaded aboard freight cars of the Pennsylvania Railroad, for movement out of the New York yards on the maiden “TrucTrain” run. Two fast trains of specially-designed 75-foot flatcars, carrying about 100 loaded trailers each, left New York and Chicago simultaneously, each headed for the other city over the 903 miles of rails.

The piggyback freight service, the first of the long-haul movements of this type, was set up to assure truck line customers of early second-morning deliveries in New York and Chicago. The Old Motor press photo is dated March 3, 1955.
