PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:
At the turn of the late 1800s passenger train travel was much more like the stage coach that it had replaced. The Overton style passenger car is iconic to this era, a time of great expansion for the railroads with the transcontinental route and the settling of the Wild West. The railroads brought much change to the landscape of North America. Passenger trains of the time were the best way to get across the continent. The Overton passenger cars facilitated this new era of transportation.
