Also, here's an excerpt regarding the premise, which I'd say is really pretty typical for SF through the 1940s and '50s: "What the story proposes is a transportation system that combines the regulatory, safety and security issues of an airplane, a subway and a nuclear power plant. It would be fascinating to consider just the psychological tension of operating such a vehicle, but this particular crew drives their atomic train through major cities like a run-down bus on a dirt road."
Any other egregious examples stand out? Especially after the early 1960s?
