In this lavishly illustrated book, No.1 in a series, here for the first time is the full record of the luxury British 12 wheel Pullman cars (built between 1908 - 1923) which graced such celebrated pre-war trains as the ‘Southern Belle’, ‘Harrogate Pullman’ and ‘Eastern Belle’, and post-war the ‘Bournemouth Belle’ and Ocean Liner expresses.
“PULLMAN PROFILE No 1 The 12-WHEEL CARS” presents a fascinating, comprehensive and nostalgic record to the reader and captures an era when the familiar umber and cream Pullman cars flourished at a time when quality really did matter.
Nowadays, the Pullman Car Co is an enterprise that continues to attract a widespread following, not only from railway enthusiasts but also from those with a more general interest in by-gone luxury travel. This is scarcely surprising as Pullman was synonymous for superior accommodation and a high level of service.
