Wallpaper Description:
The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad Rockets were lightweight, streamlined diesel-electric passenger trains built by the Budd Company.
The first six trains were the first streamlined equipment purchased by the Rock Island, as well as being its first diesel-powered passenger trains. Four of the trains consisted of three cars each, the other two each had four cars.
The stainless steel trains were each powered by an Electro-Motive Corporation model TA locomotive.
Unlike many other early streamlined trains, the locomotives were not permanently attached to the trains.
The trains were articulated except for the observation cars.
Later, as the railroad streamlined more trains on more routes, the list of "Rocket" trains grew.
The six trains as originally assigned were:
The Peoria Rocket, Chicago, Illinois to Peoria, Illinois.
The Des Moines Rocket, Chicago, Illinois to Des Moines, Iowa.
The Texas Rocket, Fort Worth, Texas to Houston, Texas.
The Denver Rocket, Kansas City, Missouri to Denver, Colorado.
The Rocket from Kansas City to Oklahoma City.
The Kansas City Rocket, Minneapolis, Minnesota to Kansas City, Missouri.
