    I replicated a section of the July 1941 timetable and curious of:

    does the Pullman fare add up to the railroad fare for the full price?
    Is the fare the ticket?
    Or ?

    As I’ve always understood it:

    In the pre-WWII era when Pullman still owned and operated its own cars, one would need two tickets potentially: one for the “railroad fare,” and another for the Pullman fare.

    I’m not sure how this worked after Pullman sold its cars to the individual railroads.
