Overview:

Between 1911 and 1927, Pullman built over 600 sleeper cars in the 10-1-2 (10 section, 1 drawing room, 2 compartment) configuration, making this the largest class of cars after the 12-1 sleeper. Blending Pullman’s focus on the economy of sectional berths with the availability of private rooms, this car was a staple in both pool and dedicated name train service for most of the major roads, and was a favorite of economy-minded “sunbird” travelers between the Northeast and Florida. The cars of plan 3585, produced between 1923 and 1927, collectively became known as the “Lake” series of cars, as all bore names of lakes in the United States, with the exception of the 12 Scottish-tinged “Loch” cars produced for the B&O. During their lifetimes, a number of these cars were converted into Tourist class cars, or were sold to Mexican railways in the 1960s. Several examples still survive in museums today, such as the Lake Ainslie (alphabetically the first of the series), which is currently undergoing restoration at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, Alabama.
