'Pullman Progress'


DUPLEX-ROOMETTE: This car gives Pullman passengers individual rooms and the comforts of a "hotel on wheels." The rooms, which are on two slightly varying floor levels, interlock, permitting Pullman to build 24 luxury accommodations in a single car. The roomy bed in the lower duplex slides under the floor of the adjacent room, which is two steps above aisle level. In the upper roomette, the bed swings up into the wall. The duplexes become private sitting rooms in daytime, contain their own lavatory and toilet, and heat, light and air conditioning are designed for the individual's personal control.
