Imagine a Journey into Yesteryear
with all the Comforts of Today .....

See spectacular scenery...Imagine, traveling in spacious comfort of elegant historic surroundings, resting at ease in a comfortable chair as the miles slip past. Receding skylines.......viewing spectacular scenery through large windows as it passes before your eyes. ...white jacketed stewards with silver trays serving you at your seat-- no need to get up as just a nod or ring of the bell will bring them to you. Watch memorable skylines recede into the distance as a new adventure begins.


Experience resplendent sunsetsTravel into a resplendent sunset, while toasting to a wonderful journey unfolding as the miles click by. Dine at white clothed tables, set with china and glassware.... After being tempted by delicious aromas from the kitchen, savor meals prepared by accomplished railroad chefs--- roast ham and raspberry corncakes, grilled steaks and steamed vegetables, fresh fruits, and famous Pullman specialties such as hash-browned potatoes, Chicken Marengo, and grilled lamb chops.

Dining Excellence.....There's no need to imagine, however, as you can enjoy rail travel like this by private railroad car today, gliding along the rails to a pleasant get away. All of this can by yours aboard, the 1930's Pullman railroad car, DOVER HARBOR. Based in Washington, D.C., the DOVER HARBOR, a six double bedroom, buffet kitchen, lounge car is available for charter from the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. This car, which operated in regular first class passenger train service through 1966, is now the only one of a fleet of over eight thousand revenue cars operated during the 1930's by the Pullman Company still operating nationwide in main line railroad service. Since purchasing the car in 1979, the goal of the Washington, D.C. Chapter NRHS has been to restore the DOVER HARBOR and to give our passengers the chance to the experience of travel by Pullman. So don't imagine--- let us welcome you aboard!
