Publicity photograph showing off the newly-updated 1929 version of the Crescent Limited passenger train posing on a curve at Easley, South Carolina. The Crescent debuted in 1925, connecting New York with New Orleans, the "Crescent City," via Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Atlanta, Montgomery, and Mobile. It traveled over the Pennsylvania, Southern, Western Railway of Alabama, and Louisville & Nashville, but perhaps achieved its greatest fame on the Southern, which handled the train between Washington and Atlanta, using specially-decorated green and gold locomotives starting in 1926, such as #1394, a heavy Pacific of the Ps-4 class. In 1929, new Pullmans were added to the original 1925 fleet. All of the new cars and several of the old were painted in green and gold to match the Southern's locomotives. This photo was used on the cover of Southern Railway's timetable and appears on p. 114 of Arthur Dubin's Some Classic Trains (Kalmbach, 1964).
