The Admiral is two hours late, according to the caption of this photo from Don Ball, Jr.’s Pennsylvania Railroad 1940s-1950s. The sleepers from the Golden State are coming through from L.A. From the late 40s until the mid-50s transcontinental sleepers, switched from train to train in Chicago, operated from New York and Washington to L.A. and San Francisco.
Interesting to see that the Admiral has an observation car here. Can anybody tell as to which car that is and if it was regularly assigned for a time?
