The Future Of Trains
Here is another World War II ad, posted on Vintage Ads, for a service that was not widely available at the time, but would in the future. All forms of travel were heavily focused on the war effort, so individual travel, especially for pleasure, was publicly discouraged. Remember this line from the old Warner Bros. cartoons: "Is this trip really necessary?" The purpose of that slogan was to encourage people to only travel when absolutely necessary, so travel related to the war effort could take priority.
