...We have already told of a very few of the earliest and most famous American locomotives; the Stourbridge Lion, which Horatio Allen brought to the Delaware & HudsonPg 120 Company; the Best Friend, which was built in New York City, and which went to Charleston, South Carolina, to be the first American locomotive to run in the United States, the De Witt Clinton, which awoke the echoes of the Hudson and Mohawk valleys in a single day; and the Tom Thumb, built by Peter Cooper, which induced the directors of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to change their motive power from horses to steam, and so opened a great new development for their property.


About Edward Hungerford, the Author: 2 'His success in Baltimore became his chief calling card,' He created five more transportation pageants during the 1930s including the Rochester Centennial of 1934, the Parade of the Years Pageant in 1936 in Cleveland; and lastly 'Railroads on Parade'.

...Hungerford traveled annually more than 75,000 rail miles 'just for the fun of it' and he calculated that over the years he had ridden more than 1.5 million miles on rails.
