The history of the railroad is a history of 19th- and 20th-century America. The railroad joined one coast to another, bridged the gap between rural and urban, and moved goods and people at a high rate of speed. Travel labels were created around the middle of the 19th century, to identify trunks on ocean liners and direct them to their staterooms. Eventually the custom expanded to trains, hotels, and airplanes, and travel companies realized the labels' marketing potential. Travel labels are widely collected both for their design and historical interest.

This Railroads Across America collection contains twenty die-cut labels from familiar railroad lines such as the Santa Fe, New York Central, Burlington, and Union Pacific, and lesser-known lines like the Southern, Wabash, Frisco and Maine Central. Also included are labels from beautiful individual trains with such evocative names as The Zephyr, Hiawatha and The Streamliner.
