RI Motor Transit Advertising
A few examples from advertising literature issued by Rock Island Motor Transit, a CRI&P subsidiary...
These scans are from folders, of the same size as regular manila office folders for 8/12" by 11" papers, distributed as advertising by RIMT. The folders were labelled, "Cedar Rapids Point List", "Dallas-Fort Worth Point List", and so on, and included, in addition to these images, a list of points served by RIMT from the indicated city. As nearly as can be determined, these folders were issued circa 1971
These images were the advertising graphics on the outside of the folders; the actual "point list" was on the inside.
"Cedar Rapids Point List"
- Cedar Rapids 1 -- An image common to most of the "Points List" folders, showing examples of RIMT equipment.
- Cedar Rapids 2 -- One version of a system map showing both RIMT and CRI&P lines.
"Dallas-Ft. Worth Point List"
- Dallas-Ft. Worth 1 -- The DFW folder was slightly different from the others, using different graphics on the outside of the folder. This is a less stylized version of the RIMT/CRI&P system map.
- Dallas-Ft. Worth 2 -- An advertising graphic which took the place of the equipment photos on the Cedar Rapids folder.
