Pullman Profile by Antony M. Ford

Book Description

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 express. "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. Pullman recognised and appreciated the value of publicity - the inauguration of new services or even new vehicles provided them with opportunities to impress the media of the day. In these and other respects Pullman was unrivalled, yet in other ways it was conservative and restrained.
