The Comet was a diesel-electric streamliner built in 1935 by the Goodyear-Zeppelin Company. It was initially placed into service between Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island. Smaller than the other streamliners, it was a three-car, double-ended train that could operate in both directions and thus did not need to be turned at destinations.
The vintage advertisement image has been recolored and cropped to work with the backlighting, allowing the focal point of the light to rest on the train's headlights and spotlight. This lightbox comes in a black 6" x 8" enclosure.
I use premium Ultrachrome inks, which are printed to a special acetate film, this protects the inks from any type of color fading from the lightsource. The artwork is protected by crytal clear glass. All lightboxes come with a warm lument LED lightbulb installed (replaceable), and include an on/off switch on the cord.
