    "MS of streamlined railway locomotive" - this is the diesel-powered M-10001, a streamliner train built by Pullman-Standard for the Union Pacific Railroad.

    The shots list refers to a "Record run across continent of America" - specifically, the train ran from Los Angeles to New York in just under 57 hours.
