Fast and fashionable, the Aerotrain was designed to travel at over 100mph. Charles Jordan led the design team at GM, and was also responsible for the famous Cadillac tail fins introduced in the late 1950s.
Drumheads are illuminated signs bearing the logos of trains. These were attached to the rear of the last car, and offered a powerful way for train lines to brand themselves. Our collection of these rare railroad artifacts is the largest know to exist.
