...is an adventure in modern gracious living

...the finest in comfort, service and safety! Pullman history is a fascinating story of progress. Until Pullman's beginning back in 1859, the berths of so-called "sleeeping cars" were no more than hard benches. The traveler hadn't even the comfort of uphostery and blankets. He slept in his clothes, covering himself with overcoat, rug or shawl. His trip at best was little more than a means of getting from one place to another.

Today Pullman offers the ultimate in modern travel comfort. To many, Pullman means thoughtful, personal service and convenieneces; to others it means an opportunity to relax and enjoy the comforts of the railroad dining car or club lounge. But to all travelers Pullman means a good night's rest provided by the finest of sleeping accommodations. Day or night, Pullman offers the safest, surest, most comfortable way to travel!
