Pullman Heavyweight 28-1 Parlor Car, circa 1930’s
The classic 'Pullman Heavyweight' passenger car was the mainstay of American railroading, and used by almost all railroads. Built in the late 1920's through the late 1940's, thousands saw service, and were used well into the 1960's, with many in use today on tourist railroads.
This car represents the elegant 28-1 'Parlor Car', used primarily in First Class service, with comfortable rotating upholstered chairs and elegant appointments. It is fitted with mechanical air-conditioning, as indicated by the roof ducting on one side and the compressor.
