Pullman Digital Collection

Founded in 1867, the Chicago-based Pullman's Palace Car Company manufactured a wide range of railroad cars at their facility for decades. By 1899, the Pullman Company had a virtual monopoly as it had absorbed its last competitor, the Wagner Palace Car Company. This lovely digital collection brings together images of over 1,200 Pullman car drawings from 1870 to 1969, with the majority of these items created for heavyweight and lightweight cars. The drawings are mostly of floor plans, but they also include duct layouts, heating pipe diagrams, and a few side elevations. Visitors can browse through items at their leisure and may also wish to look around by keyword or date of original issue. Railroad fans will find much to delight in this collection and those with a general interest in the history of technology will also be amazed.
