Scope and content
This 18-minute silent film documents the General Motors Train of Tomorrow. It shows model makers building the model, design sketches of the train's interior spaces, and then the train itself with its four cars: Star Dust, Sky View, Moon Glow, and Dream Cloud. After GM executives inspect the train, the test run is filmed from inside the locomotive, the Astra Dome, and the lounge cars.
