locked Southern passenger in sleepers out of Washington, DC week ending Jan 7, 1915

George Eichelberger

Recent trips to the archives have turned up a remarkable amount of Pullman, express and passenger train information in the Presidents' files. Business was down in 1915 so the railroad was looking for whatever they could do to save money by cutting off cars. Many versions of this form are in several Presidents' files boxes.

Is anyone aware of a list of Pullman line numbers that operated on the Southern? The files refer to them for both "sleeper" ("Pullman" is hardly ever seen in the files) and parlor cars.
