Apologies for the slight delay in publishing this edition of the newsletter, but the scheduled engineering works over ran. Normal services have now been resumed for 2008.
A Pullman welcome to a number of new passengers who have joined us during the month of December, keep spreading the word.
I am asked from time to time as to my link with the Pullman Society with regard to this newsletter. I am a member of the Pullman Society and this newsletter is independent of the Pullman Society and all its publications. A number of Pullman Society members receive the newsletter as will any person who requests a copy Emailed. The newsletter is not in anyway or form competition to the Pullman Society publications. The Pullman Car Services Archive of information and photographs is built with the sole aim to share with others at no cost as is this newsletter. My time taken up in production etc is time well spent if only one reader enjoys the content.
A lot the early UK history of Pullman was lost during the air raids during the Second World War, during which the Pullman Offices at Victoria Station was damaged a number of times. Railway Society Journals and Railway Magazines are a good source of information for both snippets of information and dedicated articles on Pullman cars and services. I am sure some readers have access to such publications and any material forwarded to me will expand the PCS Archive and then be shared will the newsletter readers.
Remember - “Information is for Sharing – Not gathering Dust”.
