Regular vs Tourist sections?

August 11, 2017 09:45AM
I've always found it interesting that the Emigrant (Tourist) sleepers aparently didn't follow what the late Mr. Beebe used to refer to as "Palmer's Law" of one person to a berth. Perhaps the morals of emigrants were considered beyond improvement?
IE: half of the berths on the Emigrant sleepers were 47" wide vs. 34.5" wide on the standard narrow gauge Pullmans.
I sometimes wonder if one of those old Pullman cars might survive somewhere in Mexico...
