Pullman Cars

Post by JohnV » Tue Dec 31, 2019 5:09 pm

Just a crazy thought for New Year's Eve:
Has anyone ever done an inventory on how many Pullman Cars are still kicking around (pre-mark 2s)? I've seen some in the craziest places - for example, two on the coast road from South Shields to Sunderland and a couple being used as restaurants on former stations.
