This review is from: Train Travels Via Pullman 1950 (Kindle Edition)
This is a fascinating account of a golden age of travel. Reading the account of Pullman sleeper travel in the USA in the 50's you can almost feel you are actually there experiencing the impeccable Pullman servings and snuggling up in the sleeper berth, then waking up and enjoying a wonderful breakfast in the dining car as fascinating ever changing scenery glides past outside. To think that just for the sake of speed all this was abandoned so that we could 'enjoy' the hassle of crowded airports, with overpriced everything, ghastly security procedures, crammed in to a flying tube with if you are lucky some barely edible food to sustain you.
Read this and find out what REAL travel was like in a bygone world where life was,t so rushed and travel could!d be a pleasure instead on an endurance test.
Very well written. Get it worth the price many times over an absolute gem.
