Experience the Past
July 12-14, 2019
With its renowned on-board meal service, luxurious Pullman-staffed sleeping accommodations, and rapid transit time between New York and Chicago, the Pennsylvania Railroad’s famous Broadway Limited represented the pinnacle of cross-country rail travel. Between 1912 and 1995, the Broadway carried millions of passengers across America’s steel-railed highways. The train reached its peak of opulence with the 1949 delivery of all-new streamlined passenger cars, sporting the latest in mid-century design and postwar style.
To celebrate the 70th birthday of the 1949 equipment, three of the original railcars took to home rails for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A total of 46 passengers had the unique opportunity to travel along the original route of the Broadway from New York to Pittsburgh and return in these meticulously-restored railcars, while being served authentic Pennsylvania Railroad recipes from the original Broadway Limited menus. Limited space was available to sleep aboard these historic railcars while weekending in Pittsburgh.
