    No. It was a transitional moving from the Prairie to the Usonian style with more emphasis on the Usonian. We were there probably 5 times. Just down the road from Falling Water is Kentuck Knob another Usonian,

    There really aren't that many Deco trains that were built, lot's of designs/concepts though so it would be limited. But here ya go.

    The Mallard is extreme Art Deco and extremely fast.

    Some of the trains I looked at in the Smithsonian last year, were amazing.

    But the Art Deco thing. The more I think about it, it extends into all aspects of our lives. Furnishings, cutlery etc.

    I typically give trains a passing glance, unlike some people I'm just not into them that much except from a more practical, historical standpoint, i e their roll in history. But that's just me. :dunno:

    It was pervasive, that design found it's way into everything, all aspects of people's lives. It was followed by a transitional period called Art Moderne which still contained many elements of Deco with the beginnings of Mid Century Modern elements blended in.

    Ringel.

    It's something I take for granted, so never really noticed.

    Here in Europe, so many antique shops, full of Art Deco, in all its forms.
