NO MAN OF QUALITY HAS EVER PREFERRED AN AUTO

Old Pullman is rolling again (Beverly Fortune, 12/26/09, McClatchy Newspapers)


The interior of the vintage Pullman car looks as if it came straight from a 1940s film - heavily paneled walls, scarlet drapes swagged over the windows, and a dining table that easily seats 12.

Unlike a train parked on a movie back lot, this elegant car, owned by R.J. Corman Railroad Co., is fully operational.

One recent morning, the old train car, pulled by a bright-red locomotive, glided out of Corman's railyard in downtown Lexington with a party of employees aboard, laughing and chatting.

This was the maiden trip for the Pullman after its top-to-bottom renovation. Destination: Bagdad, Ky., 53 track miles away.
