"In order to compete, B & O executives . . . would need to create a railroad like no other; and in 1890 they launched the Royal Blue Line, offering premier passenger service between Washington, D.C., and New York City. It boasted the company's fastest locomotives . . , its most luxurious passenger cars . . . , and dining cars that served exquisite regional cuisine . . . . The Royal Blue Line was, as advertised, the 'Finest Daylight Train Service in the World'."
