ISN'T it time the rails capitalized on the crowds the Circus Train Limited attracts?
WHEN Thomas M. Goodfellow left the helm of the Long Island to assume the presidency of the Association of American Railroads last June 1, the trade-press Railway Age properly headlined him as a "public-relating railroader." For it was Goodfellow who scrubbed off LIRR's tarnished, tuscan-red image after 1954 and created "The Route of the Dashing Commuter," replete with varicolored depots, parlor-car Cannonballs, on-time trains, and lighthearted and/or meaningful p.r. to spark a 65-million-dollar revamp of the once press-pilloried pike. Goodfellow is so high on public relations that he considers it his top concern at the A.A.R., thinks the rails "should be shouting [their story] from the housetops," and says flatly, "There will be no help in Congress without the public behind us."
Splendid-we couldn't agree more. And we're sure Goodfellow would be the first to agree with us that railroading must find an audience before it can begin its crusade. Last summer we had an enthusiastic, eminently eligible audience in our town for "Old Milwaukee Days" -a festive annual (since 1962) outdoor program sponsored by the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. and climaxed on July 4 by a 3.5-mile authentic circus parade (650 horses, 2136 bandsmen, and 54 wagons) observed by 600,000 residents and visitors.
The circus parade is genuinely rail-oriented because each year several days before the parade an authentic Circus Parade Limited rolls the hardware into Milwaukee from the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wis., 118.9 miles, via Chicago & North Western and behind steam (Q's Mike 4960 in previous years; Dick Jensen's ex-GTW Pacific 5629 in 1967). Schlitz's able publicists bombard the public in advance with the Limited's route and schedule, suggest the best photo and train-watching sites, detail the consist, and spare not the adjectives: "The Greatest and Most Beautiful Circus Train the World has ever seen" . . . "17 Double-Length Cars 17, 3 Resplendent Passenger Cars 3" . . . "This Remarkable Railroad Retinue" . . . "An Immense & Stupendous Enterprise!" . . . "A Day of General Rejoicing for Young and Old." And the public responds, comes to track-side by the thousands, and empties boxes of film.
