Calling all train enthusiasts! Immerse yourself in locomotive history at the Historic Pullman Foundation's Pullman two-day Railroad Days event, which brings four historic Pullman Cars to the 111th Street/Pullman Metra Electric station along with a host of other train-related activities over the course of a single weekend. Visitors can explore the 1923 New York Central 3, the 1914 Francis L. Suter, the 1950 Royal Street Observation car and Amtrak's 1981 George M. Pullman (the final passenger car built by the Pullman-Standard Company), as well as the new exhibit "Railroaders: Jack Delano's Homefront Photography" at the renovated Pullman Exhibit Hall. Plus, don't miss guided tours, music and a virtual reality experience that guides viewers the technology powering America's freight railroads.
