Soot toughens tires, prints papers, shines shoes, paints palaces. Carbon black is a valuable product, and more than 50% of America's total carbon black production is shipped over the Santa Fe. Photos show spectacular smoke clouds over the Texas panhandle (cough, cough), the burner houses, tiny gas flames, blackened rubber, a conveyor line of paper bags full of the stuff, and a bulk-loading machine that fills freight cars automatically.

Mr. F. Gladden Searle travels over 50,000 miles a year, much of it by Pullman. I'll bet he travels that way as much as possible; 50,000 is a lot of miles by rail. But, hey, you can check 150 lbs of luggage in the luggage car, as well as your personal carry-ons, and a Pullman lower berth is, on the average, only $2.65 overnight. Or go for a Pullman Single Occupancy Section -- or a private room! Published in the October, 1940 issue of FORTUNE Artist: Source: eBay seller PeriodPaper Restoration...
