|Plot||:||+ "Mr. Pullman's Palace Car". The story of George Pullman and his invention of the railroad "sleeping car." The broadcast originates from Hollywood. In 1947 most Americans took sleeping cars on trains for granted as they crossed the continent of America in perfect comfort but in 1855 travel was a far different story and it was in that year that a young man named George Mortimer Pullman, then 24, left his home in New York on a trip to Chicago. This is the story of how George Pullman pioneered the comfortable sleeping car that revolutionized the comfort of travel and how the funeral of President Abraham Lincoln, an unfortunate occasion, brought the Pullman car to the attention of Americans.|
