A familiar sight along “Ol’ Man River,”  the brown, orange and gold of the Illinois Central “Streak-Liner”

The big lines of the Mid-West prefer diesels because they give rocket-action power for high speeds over long, flat distances.  New in 1955, the 6414 Auto Loader and 6517 caboose make their debut. The “Streak-Liner” set also includes 6672 Santa Fe Reefer lettered in black instead of blue and the famous NYC Pacemaker 6464 boxcar.
