Freedom Train Promotional Poster A
Poster Style "A"
promotional poster was issued before the AFT Foundation had officially
been formed. Measuring approx. 23x32", this poster was nearly
the size of a theatrical movie poster.
Preamble Express veteran Keith Muldowney, the poster depicts Grand
Trunk Western No. 5629, a 4-6-2 locomotive, and the artwork is based
on a photograph by the late Don Ball -- who worked for the American
Freedom Train. The photograph can be seen on page 234 of Don's book,
"Railroads, An American Journey", 1975.
This same graphic
was used on many items promoting the AFT concept including letterhead
and promotional brochures.
