  1. The Freedom Train was a train that toured the U.S. teaching citizens about America's history and ideals. They distributed a comic book and sets of replicas of historic documents.
  2. One of the earliest comics about railroads is How He Reigned and How He Mizzled by Alfred Crowquill. You can find some discussion about it here.
  3. The French National Railroads produced a couple of nice comics to encourage young tourists to visit and use trains to travel around France.
  4. There were a series of educational comics published by the American Railroad Association. Here are a couple of samples with a pack sent to educators.
  5. Here are a couple that might fill the bill... Legend of the Allegheny Traveler Great Train Robbery - about actual Calico Railroad at Knott's Berry Farm Pictorial Story of the General - there are at least two versions of this

  7. Never noticed the flying saucer in the background of this one before! Wonder how those worms held the steering wheel?
  8. Interesting topic. Does anyone have any idea what the first UFO / extraterrestrial / space visitor appearances in comics were?
  9. If you see comics repeatedly miscategorized as you have shown, it is often specific to a particular seller. In this case, as suspected, it is seller "newkadia". They have over 100,000 active listings. Apparently whoever lists their comics uses the starting date of the series as the basis for the listing category rather than the date of the actual issue. So you can eliminate that seller's results completely. Go to Advanced Search Scroll down to Sellers Click on "Only show items from:" Click "Specific sellers" Select "exclude" instead of "include" from the drop down menu Enter in your desired seller ID to exclude. You can also add multiple sellers, separated by commas. Then run your search. Bookmark your search results so you don't have to do these adjustments every time. Just click on the bookmark, and the adjusted search is run. The only risk is that the excluded seller(s) may have what you are looking for... Let us know how it works.
