The engine featured in the last panel is that of the Twentieth Century Limited, a famous train running between New York and Chicago between 1906 and 1962.  It gave its name to a Broadway play, Twentieth Century, by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, set on board the train, which was made into a movie in 1934 starring John Barrymore and Carole Lombard and later adapted into a musical, On the Twentieth Century.   This would have been the train Ginger takes to Chicago… that is if she were actually going there.  In 1938, the New York Central Railroad commissioned a famous industrial designer to give its streamliners a makeover, giving the the 20th Century Limited an Art Deco look.  I’m taking a historical liberty by inserting the 1938 design here in Ginger’s 1935, because it is so iconic to the era.

For the sake of a dramatic panel, I am assuming that the Creepy Guy who has been following Ginger had the misfortune to jump off the Chicago-bound train just as the New York bound train was arriving on a parallel track.  Oo… hard cheese, Creepy Guy.
