MIcro-Trains Friendship Train Series





Our new ‘Friendship Train Series’ will feature 12 prototypical freight and
passenger cars that were part of the American Friendship Train in 1947. The
Friendship Train collected food donated by Americans in cities all across the
U.S. to be shipped to the people of France and Italy who desperately needed
help following the end of World War II. Without involvement of the government,
the food was loaded, transported by rail and truck and shipped overseas
for free due to the generosity of the American people and their businesses.
There were over 250 Friendship Train box cars that travelled through eleven
states from Los Angeles to New York City and ultimately to France and Italy.
Many of the cars had large banners and placards on the sides and crates individually
labeled so there was no mistaking where the food came from. This
series will not include a locomotive.
