CSX on the Double Big Four & Ex-EL DVD


Crestline Books & Motorbooks presents The Cars of Pullman


One of America’s greatest business enterprises, the Pullman Company, provided outstanding service aboard a vast fleet of railroad passenger cars that could be found on the rails of al- most every major railroad in the United States. The Cars of Pullman presents a colorfully illustrated history examining Pull- man’s diverse fleet, from its spectacular custom-built wooden cars of the 19th Century to steel heavyweight cars in the prewar years and on into the lightweight streamlined era. Authors Joe Welsh, Bill Howes, and Kevin J. Holland include


period photos, many in rare color, as well as car diagrams and ads that help trace the development, composition, and evolu- tion of the historically and culturally significant Pullman fleet, including the gamut of sleeper, parlor, and dining cars, all de- signed and constructed by the Pullman Company itself. This is a fitting tribute to the former cultural icons aboard which strode giants of American life, such as Babe Ruth and Clark Gable, as well as first-time travelers from small-town America. The Cars of Pullman is a 176-page hardcover 8.7 by 10.9- inch book retailing for $14.99 from Crestline Books. Motorbooks
