  • Advertising & Photos Used On This Site: The original 1940s and 1950s Pennsylvania Railroad advertising and photos used throughout this website were used by the railroad to promote the “new” postwar Broadway Limited and have been provided with the appropriate source citations. The black & white photographs used on the “Buy Tickets” page are original Pennsylvania Railroad advertising photos from the F. J. Payne private collection. The ads and photos are presented here, unedited, to acknowledge the history of the train and the people who served it, as well as the “dress-up” attire common at that time.

  • Non-Discrimination Policy: The Broadway Limited does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, or any other characteristic – all are welcome aboard our train.

  • ADA Compliance: The Broadway Limited's rail equipment is not handicap accessible. Historic and vintage rail passenger equipment, like that used on the Broadway Limited, is exempt from ADA regulations under U.S. Code: Title 42: Section 12184. The passenger cars used on this train were constructed before disability accessibility laws were adopted. Vestibules, boarding areas, stairs, step-stools, seating, and especially doorways, passageways, aisles, and onboard restrooms may not accommodate all passengers. We will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate differently-abled passengers who desire to ride our trains. If you have a physical disability, please contact us before booking your trip so that we may find the best way to accommodate your needs.

  • Historic Railcars: The Catalpa Falls, Colonial Crafts, and Frank Thomson are all vintage 1949 railcars that have been meticulously restored. The cars are each privately owned by individuals that have spent countless hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars maintaining and upgrading these 70-year-old cars to meet the most stringent of federal safety standards for the operation of historic rail equipment. During your time on board, please be respectful of the historic nature of the railcars and the investment they represent.

  • Connections: As the Broadway Limited operates on the rear of a scheduled Amtrak train, our train is at the mercy of Amtrak’s scheduling and delays. As a result, the Broadway Limited does not and cannot guarantee any connections with other transportation providers in New York or Pittsburgh. While Amtrak makes every reasonable effort to adhere to its published schedules, unforeseen circumstances may cause delays for either Amtrak’s trains or those of other transportation providers that render connections impossible. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but these circumstances are beyond our control, and we accept no liability for a missed connection. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us before booking your trip.

  • Open Seating: All three of the railcars will have table areas that are considered “open seating” for all passengers when not being used for meal service. Please be mindful of the time you spend in these areas and respect your fellow passengers that may want to enjoy the view from your perspective!

  • Horseshoe Curve: During the train’s traversing of Horseshoe Curve on both the eastbound and westbound journeys, the nine occupants of the coveted open seating area in the Frank Thomson’s observation lounge will be decided by a random lottery of all passengers.

  • Staff Accommodations: The Broadway Limited’s railcars will be staffed at all times while passengers are aboard the cars, including while bedroom passengers will be on the cars overnight. For this purpose, the Frank Thomson’s bedrooms will be reserved for the Broadway Limited’s staff and will not be open to passengers.
