The Right Track
Bygone first class travel, via Pullman Rail Journeys
There’s a part at the end of Trains, Planes and Automobiles where John Candy and Steve Martin are standing on the LaSalle and Van Buren L platform.
Candy tells Martin, “Next time, let’s go first class, alright?”
Wise words, these.
So in the spirit of Del and Neal, we present Pullman Rail Journeys, the Chicago-based train company that’s bringing back the golden age of rail travel, now taking reservations for their soon-to-be-launched service to New York City.
Elegant 90-foot-long domed dining cars. Sleeping quarters with lavish bathrooms. Scenic bar cars replete with white-jacketed livery at attendance.
In short: we’re talkin’ how a man of stature used to travel.
If only Del and Neal had this luxury.
