Its #tbt Throwback Thursday! In this 1949 magazine advertisement, college students are urged to travel back to school by Pullman carthe safest, most comfortable way to get there! Travelers could catch up on reading, eat in the dining car, and sleep on a comfortable Pullman bed, building up plenty of pep for busy registration days. After riding a Pullman, students arrived on campus relaxed, rested, well-groomed, and ready to begin another school year. The small print at the bottom of this advertisement urges readers to visit the 1949 Chicago Railroad Fair. Among the thirty-eight company sponsors were several Norfolk Southern predecessors, including the Erie, the New York Central, and the Nickel Plate, as well as the Pullman Company. Today, Norfolk Southern interchanges with five major rail carriers in Chicago, enhancing service and operations to support the global economy. #backtoschool #Pullman #norfolksouthern #advertising
