locked Train Bulletin for FDR to travel to DC Feb 3 & 4, 1933

George Eichelberger

For the first inauguration of FDR in 1933, the Southern moved 7,633 passenger to Washington March 1- 4. More than 3200 were in Pullmans in regular trains, extra sections of regular trains and special trains. A note from ER Oliver to Fairfax Harrison says that was double the numbers in 1929. (It does not mention if the Pullmans were used as hotel space in DC.)

The following Bulletin is for FDR’s train from Warm Springs to Washington.
