Forty years ago, it was the way to travel. A New York businessman would book a berth on the Nickel Plate Limited to be in Cleveland for a morning meeting. A family would reserve a suite on the Santa Fe Chief to tour the Western on vacation. Back then, one could climb between crip linens and soft blankets, adjust the oversized pillows, and watch America speed by in the night. In its heydey, the Pullman Company's remarkable sleeping car system routinely played host to more than 50,000 guests nightly.
