Want to see what it was like to take a train from Union Station in the 1940s?

Have you ever wondered nostalgically what it was like to take a train out of Washington, D.C. Union Station in its hey day? Most of us have probably only seen a glimpse through photos or through stories told by friends second-hand.  We've found a wonderful new video on youtube which gives you a real peek at the experience and traveling by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.  There are scenes from inside the train and also of the train from trackside. The video also talks about the locomotive, many different jobs required to keep the train running and the passengers and happy, comfortable, and safe.   Running time is 10 minutes for this black and white video. 
And after this video has whet your appetite, be sure to join us this year for a journey aboard our classic Pullman, Dover Harbor to experience the golden age of rail travel first-hand..We will be announcing some upcoming 2013 trip sales in about a month, so stay tuned to our web site or sign-up for our e-mail list.
