 PRR's RED ARROW passes old Delray Tower - 1941


This is the Pennsylvania Railroad's RED ARROW which is passing the old Delray Tower enroute to Fort Street Union Station around 8:00 a.m.  The train carried sleeping cars, a bar-lounge, and a dining car.  This photo was taken on July 29, 1941.  The RED ARROW trains were named after a World War I infantry troop.  Note that Delray Tower was replaced with the current tower in the mid-1940's, after World War II.  The diamond being crossed is the NYC Detroit-Toledo line.  [E.
