Private Varnish 2001 Issue 95
A Pullman - Standard Beauty Sleeper survivor finds a home and a future in Colorado
COVER. Truth be known, the Curley Pine on our cover is not the Plantation Pine that today is the Colorado Pine, our feature car. Most often, the Pullman Company made a pictorial record of only one or two cars from any lot of cars that it built. But aside from the name, this is exactly what the Plantation Pine would have looked like on the day it was completed at Pullman-Standard on April 17, 1953.
The new Pine-series 6-4-6 sleeping cars "S" type double bedrooms, below left, had individual chairs instead of the more traditional crosswise sofa. "S" type roomettes, below right, featured a new cutaway bed, easily raised or lowered without having to step out into the passageway.
