Ride the Streamliners, Close cover before striking match.

This cardboard matchbook was a give-away item used to advertise the railroad companies. This one encourages people to "Ride The Streamliner." The matchbook would have had a group of matches (20-30) that you could tear off, striking on the roughed surface at the bottom front of the package. This package is a very dark red, with white lettering and a Streamliner engine done mostly in yellow.
