It happens 150 times a day in Chicago

Once American industry was proud of what it did.

Hence advertisements such as the one above.

But what are they really selling? Certainly not locomotives. For the railroads wouldn’t be basing any purchases on such printed ads as this.

Nope, it’s all about consumer confidence. If you feel good about it, odds are you’ll be spending those dollars on American made goods. Goods shipped to market, arriving by rail, at some point.

A catchy phrase though never hurts.
