Rich in history

At the turn of the 19th Century, there was no greater symbol of wealth and luxury than a private Pullman railway car—long, bright and exquisitely appointed. Essentially, private Pullman coaches were the business jets of their day, accommodating tycoons like American financier J. P. Morgan as they travelled overland between cities of their corporate empires, attaching themselves to overnight trains. Finished in custom paneling with private telegraphs, silk carpets and expensive furnishings, they were the very essence of style, technology and comfort and remained iconic in the American imagination for as long as railways were ascendant. Pullman also made first-class lounge cars and luxury dining cars for many a passenger railway company, with luxurious fittings and sunny hand-crafted interiors that spoke of the finer things in life.
