Fares on Fast and Luxurious Trains
Fares on Fast and Luxurious Trains.
In many parts of the world it is common for a railway passenger to be called upon to pay an additional fee for travel by certain crack trains. In Europe “limited” trains have not until recently been operated in large numbers, but the practice of running this class of train now appears to be growing. Within the past year or so, Britain has put into service a number of trains which are only available for the passenger who is willing to pay a surcharge over the ordinary rail fare, most of these trains being especially luxurious or especially fast.
A Railway Sound Picture
The Pennsylvania News reports that “The Broadway Limited,” a moving picture film with sound effects just completed by the Pennsylvania Railroad, had its initial showing in Philadelphia, U.S.A., on 12th October, 1929. The new picture depicts a trip on the world famous P.R.R. flyer between New York, Philadelphia and Chicago, and reveals many of the interesting operating details which surround the movement of the train.
