The National Railway Historical Society, Washington, D.C. Chapter, Inc.  (DCNRHS) presents

The New Yorker – Pullman Service

Friday, May 26, 2017 to Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Sprint to Manhattan for a Spring getaway aboard Dover Harbor, a classic 1930’s Pullman sleeper-lounge railroad car.  Enjoy the comfortable, elegant surroundings and attentive service of our stewards, as if you were traveling first class in the golden age of passenger trains.

      After a Friday afternoon departure from Washington Union Station sit back, relax,  enjoy the scenery, and make new friends as our train races along Amtrak’s high-speed Northeast Corridor to a mid-evening arrival in the Big Apple. Stay the weekend in a favorite hotel of your choosing (not included). On this rail only trip, you can make own arrangements to explore all that Manhattan has to offer: see Broadway shows; shop at Macy’s, Saks, or Bloomingdales; sightsee at the Statue of Liberty, from the heights of the Empire State Building. (photo above), or in luminous Times Square; visit the several fabulous New York area Botanical Gardens, and enjoy the “City that Never Sleeps.”

      Our return trip departs Penn Station southward at late morning on Tuesday, May 30th. Reminisce about your big city adventures over lunch as our train travels across the meadows of New Jersey, rolls through Philadelphia, and sails across the Susquehanna River to Baltimore and a mid-afternoon return to Washington, DC.
