Ronald Reagan advertising the Union Pacific Domeliner City of Los Angeles

Before he was governor, before he was president, actor Ronald Reagan appeared in these Union Pacific Railroad ads in the National Geographic in the mid-1950s. The Domeliner City of Los Angeles is the same train that was featured in the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy kept pulling the train’s emergency brake. For Union Pacific’s folder advertising the train, see streamlinermemories.com
