The fascinating story of railroad travel by presidents of the U.S. from the very earliest period, when John Quincy Adams was the first to ride a train, to Bill Clinton's recent journeys aboard the rails. At one time, the private Pullman car on a special train was for the president what Air Force One is today, allowing him freedom to make important trips, campaign for re-election, and to do the nation's business wherever he was needed. A superbly researched text is supplemented with many rare photographs of the golden age of presidential travel under Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman in the 1930s and '40s.
