Train No. 5 The Capitol Limited, arrives in Chicago, Illinois on August 11, 1939.

The Capitol Limited was a passenger train run by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, using the B&O's tracks between Union Station in Washington, DC and Grand Central Station in Chicago, Illinois via Pittsburgh. It was discontinued on May 1, 1971, when Amtrak took over passenger operations from the B&O.

In 1981, Amtrak's own Capitol Limited was inaugurated, using the same tracks east of Pittsburgh.

"Drumhead" logos such as these often adorned the ends of observation cars on the Capitol Limited.
