Hi Ike and all,
Seems like cheap travel till you realize that (according to Lending Tree) $23 in 1915 is worth $593 today!

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.
