We weren't in the Great War yet, but we were coming out of a recession which lasted from January 1913 until December 1914.

Could World War 1 have had any affect on ridership? WW1 took place from early 1914 towards the end of 1918 which cover these notices on ridership. My two cents.

I posted the attached to the SouthernRailway.io group yesterday and added the Dec 11, 1914 memo today. Other than business being down, it appears the PRR was demanding an increased share of the Pullman fares on trains through Washington. Obviously, more research is needed…is any one aware of what the issue was….circa 1914?
