(Thumbnail) First " Trackless Train ", in front of the old Post Office, ca 1925 (image/jpeg)
Title First " Trackless Train ", in front of the old Post Office, ca 1925
Description  - located on Zimmerman Ave., Niagara Falls, Ont.
Notes  "Funded by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and the U.S. Tire Company, the Trackless Train operated like a truck, but outwardly looked like a locomotive train. It featured an engine, cab, and a combination dining and sleeping car.
The trackless train made a cross-country trip from New York City to Los Angeles from March 1925 through March 1926, in order to promote the development of a national highway system as advocated by Herbert Hoover. In Dayton the National Cash Register Company allowed its 6500 employees time off to view the train. The Sandusky Register, June 24, 1925, reported that the rubber tires on the novel vehicle had been driven for 5850 miles without going flat."
