PULLMAN CAR HISTORY.

–  –  –

Entries such as (D) indicate that the car was originally (old) Type D, and was withdrawn before the new Classification was introduced in 1932.

Entries such as (I) indicate that the car concerned would have been Restriction( I) had it been allocated to the S.R. when the latters scheme of Route Restrictions was compiled.

Entry (4) for the 1960 cars (Schedule Nos.311 to 354 inclusive) is the B.R.(S.) equivalent of the British Railways Standard Restriction ‘CI’.

Entries such as 6/2A indicates that the car concerned was originally Restriction 6, and S.R. Route Restriction2A.

Entries such as -/2A indicates that the car concerned was not originally given a S.R. Route Restriction because it was not originally allocated to the S.R.; and that it was given Restriction 2A on being transferred to the S.R.

Interior Decoration.

Mahogany panelling, classical (floral & ribbons). Seating covered in green leather and blue and grey tiling.

Editorial Error:

My apologies for the editorial errors that appeared in the last edition of Pullman & CIWL News No.32.

The Pullman Car History featured ‘Third Class CAR No.50’. I wrongly detailed the post 1960 schedule number as being No.160, this should have read No.147, and that the car was 2 x 12 wheel and not 2 x 8 wheel.

Within the Menu page, I referenced CAR No.80 instead of CAR No.50.

My thanks to Geoff Cox for also advising of the errors.

The wonderful Brighton Belle, the only electric all-Pullman train in the world, succeeded the steam service between London and Brighton in 1933 and became the world's first electric inter-city train. A much loved railway icon, the three five-car train sets were withdrawn by BR in 1972. Now we have a wonderful idea an amazing feat of restoration, to bring together a complete train set and return the Belle to the mainline!

To follow progress with the restoration and help.

Pullman & La Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits et des Grand Express Européens News Edition No.33 - November & December 2016 - Page 7 of 70 The National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, Tennessee - Howard Sprenger.

On 20th July, I visited the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, where I took the photographs below.

The National Civil Rights Museum is a complex of museums and historic buildings in Memphis, Tennessee;

its exhibits trace the history of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States from the 17th century to the present.

The museum is built around the former Lorraine Motel, where Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Two other buildings and their adjacent property, also connected with the King assassination, have been acquired as part of the museum complex.

The museum re-opened in 2014 after renovations that increased the number of multi-media and interactive exhibits, including numerous short movies to enhance features.

The museum is owned and operated by the Lorraine Civil Rights Museum Foundation, based in Memphis.

The Lorraine Motel is owned by the Tennessee State Museum and leased long term to the Foundation to operate as part of the museum complex.

Pullman Car History Digest - Geoff Cox.

Since the publication of Coupé News edition 40, the Pullman Car History feature has grown into a very useful resource, with a mass of data covering almost 100 cars.

To make it easy to access details of an individual car I have created with the help of Terry Bye a Digest of the published information.

We have agreed that the Digest will be published annually (free of any charge), this will allow the six histories published in each twelve month period to be added.

The Digest will be published in early December of each year, as with the newsletter this will be attached to an E-mail in ‘pdf’ format.

2017 Pullman Cars Preserved - T.Bye & P.Hall.

To advise readers that the ‘2017 Pullman Cars Preserved’ will be published in early January 2017.

Currently in draft form, I am currently lacking any photographs of individual preserved cars for inclusion.

if you would like to have a photograph included, please forward in ‘jpg’ format with any details you wish added to my E-mail address.

As ever my thanks to Tommy Knox for the following information on steam hauled Pullman services on the East Coast Main Line.

Within the text reference is made to ‘Up’ and ‘Dn’ workings. These relate thus, an ‘Up’ working is a service to London Kings Cross, and ‘Dn’ is a ‘Down’ working from Kings Cross.

I.e. All lines to any of London’s terminals are classified as the ‘UP Line’.
