Freedom Train Promotional Buttons
Yes, there was
a time when the American Freedom Train consisted of little more
than an idea... and buttons like these.
These 2.0 and
2.5 inch diameter buttons are from a High Iron Company excursion
in 1973 behind steam locomotive NKP 759. The observation car "Splendid
Spirit" (a repainted "Brothers Two" lettered
to promote the American Freedom Train) was at the tail of the train.
