Pullman Night Express

Friday, October 11, 2013 to Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Set sail for an extended Columbus Day Weekend railroad adventure to one of two fantastic destination cities – The Windy City – Chicago, IL – or The City of Steel, Pittsburgh, PA. Your trip starts on Friday afternoon as our legendary 1930s Pullman Dover Harbor departs Washington, DC's Union Station on Amtrak’s Capitol Limited. Relax in the lounge, enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and dessert as our train rumbles up the scenic Potomac River Valley and climbs the steep, windy Allegheny Mountain grades for late evening arrival in Pittsburgh. Those detraining in historic Pittsburgh will have 3 full days to visit a city that offers over 70 attractions, everything from the Andy Warhol Museum to the Zoo!

Or continue on to Chicago. As night falls snuggle into your authentic Pullman berth in your deluxe double bedroom as our train glides on its “magic carpet of steel” through the night. Awake as we approach Chicago to a freshly prepared breakfast as you take in the many vistas of farms and steel mills of northern Indiana and Illinois. Arrive at Union Station refreshed and ready to spend the next two days enjoying the sights of this magnificent city – Willis Tower, the Lakefront/Navy Pier, Museum of Science and Industry, the Magnificent Mile, art museums, & much much more!

Dover Harbor will depart Chicago Monday evening October 14 with Amtrak's Capitol Limited for our return odyssey. As the sun fades in the west enjoy dinner, socialize in the lounge, read, play cards, and relax before retiring to your Pullman berth once more as the train rocks you gently to sleep. Our train arrives in Pittsburgh in the early morning, where Parlor Seat Passengers will board to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee, juice, and pastries. As dawn breaks, colorful fall foliage will paint the Youghiogheny and Potomac River Valleys with beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves.  A mid-morning brunch will be served to all passengers before our scheduled early afternoon arrival in Washington, DC.

ACCOMMODATIONS

All passengers may enjoy the comforts of Dover Harbor's lounge.  En route sleeping accommodations for Chicago passengers are Dover Harbor's Classic Pullman Bedrooms, which sleep two persons in an upper and lower berth.
