Review of Pullman Rail Journeys - Rebirth of an American Legend DVD

Pullman predated the Civil War, and became THE name in first class rail travel through the golden age of railroads.

Pullman operated the sleeping car service on all the great name trains from the 20th Century Limited to the Super Chief; the Broadway Limited to the Panama Limited. But with the formation of Amtrak in 1971, Pullman faded from the railroad scene.

Now Iowa Pacific is bringing Pullman back. The first route of the new service operates on Amtrak's City of New Orleans.

Climb aboard for a ride on the Pullman cars from Chicago to New Orleans and return. See the sights and meet some of the people who make it happen.
