Re: SAL "Route of the Silver Meteor"...

Larry Fink

John Nehrich reported that the "Silver Meteor" slogan was used from 1937 to 1963. But he also reported that it was added in 1944 at the same time as the "Courteous Service" slogan. Based on Ed's evidence, it appears that the 1937 date is the one to use. John credited much of his information to the "SAL Color Guide" by Paul Faulk.

Might have already been covered sometime before I was a member of this group, but am looking for a date if anyone can lend a hand. What year did the SAL start applying the "Route of the Silver Meteor" slogan to the sides of their box cars?

Much appreciated,
