Pullman Car "Belleau Wood" (editor's title)

Seven-drawing-room car
Builder's photo of the "Belleau Wood," a 1920 Pullman sleeping car for deluxe service on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway. It was one of eight seven-drawing-room cars, all of which were named for battles fought in World War I. In railroad parlance, a drawing room was a private compartment with at least three bunks and a private washroom. Today, such accommodations are more commonly referred to as triple-bedrooms. This photo appears on p. 423 of Some Classic Trains by Arthur Dubin (Kalmbach, 1964).
