The 1974 Preamble Express Story
 
 
 
 

In preparation for the Bicentennial journey of the American Freedom Train, the four-car Preamble Express was dispatched to scout the route and court host city officials.

For five months in the summer and fall of 1974 the Preamble Express made calls in all 48 contiguous states. Dozens of display sites were evaluated and hundreds of local officials and law enforcement were informed of the requirements to host America's largest Bicentennial event.
