These three ashtrays evoke the Golden Years of USA passenger railroad travel.
First is a Pennsylvania Railroad ashtray sporting its Keystone motif. The USA Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is dubbed "The Keystone State", hence the private railroad of the same name adopted the keystone as its symbol.
The next image is of a Turquoise Room ashtray. The Turquoise Room was an exclusive section of The Santa Fe Railway's premier train, The Super Chief, which ran to and from Chicago and Los Angeles.
The final image is of a "regular" Santa Fe ashtray. "Santa Fe" is etched into the glass, reflecting that railroad's dedication to class.
