Drawing Room

Complete with every personal need, the drawing room is especially suited for family or group travel. By day it is a spacious living room, with wide sofa, two movable lounge chairs and two large windows. Toilet and washing facilities are completely enclosed in a separate annex. There is a large wardrobe locker for hanging clothes full-length.

[A] Here is plenty of room -- for meal service, business conferences or games. Wide overhead luggage rack, complete air conditioning, individual controls of heat, lights and air flow, cool drinking water, electric shaver outlet, well-placed mirrors and a locker for shoes which the porter will shine if desired.

[B] The drawing room accommodates three full-length beds at night. All feature mattresses which are truly sleep-inviting. The lounge chairs are folded and placed under the longitudinal bed which opens from the wall, the transverse sofa converts into a second bed and the third bed is an upper brought down from along one of the cross walls.


[C] During the daytime, berth and section passengers are accommodated in comfortable sofa seats, especially suited for lounging or window gazing. Individual reading lights are provided and there is ample room for luggage and wraps. Completely equipped toilet and dressing rooms elsewhere in the car are always available.

Note: A "Section" is the space of both a lower and upper berth, but where one berth only will be prepared for night use. Where lower and upper berths within the confines of a section are purchased for separate use, the accommodations furnished will be as described and pictured under the heading "Upper Berth" and "Lower Berth."

[D] Where a section for single occupancy is purchased the occupant has exclusive use of all the facilities in the section, including both seats, extra luggage space and extra pillows and blankets as desired. In the use of a section in nighttime service, as pictured here, both the upper and lower berth mattresses are placed on the lower berth to make for more restful sleep. The upper berth is closed to provide more head room and four clothes hangers are furnished.
