This postcard of the late 1930s from Gary Thompson's collection depicts the Alton Route's Abraham Lincoln powered by EMC boxcab 50 with the "shovel-nose" streamlining applied. The artist has depicted the train in the original Baltimore & Ohio blue and gold livery, but with the Alton Route herald on the nose. One might have thought the Alton would have painted the train in the line's historic red passenger colors, but apparently that was not done until the unit was rebuilt into its original boxcab shape.
