Shenandoah flyer, 1976.

Multicolor printed paper flyer issued in October 1976 for the daily Shenandoah (Washington-Cumberland-Cincinnati). Flyer lists the cities along the route and fare discounts. "Now for the first time you can take in eye-opening daytime views of the beautiful Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains as you travel..."

<i>Shenandoah</i> flyer, 1976.

The Shenandoah ran from 1976 until 1981, when the route was discontinued; it took its name from an earlier train operated by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. In the beginning, passengers could transfer to the combined Mountaineer/James Whitcomb Riley (later the Cardinal) at Cincinnati for connecting service to Chicago. Today, the portion of the route between Washington and Cumberland, Md. is covered by the Capitol Limited (Washington-Chicago).

This flyer highlights the use of new single-level Amfleet equipment on the Shenandoah.
