On May 14-15, Historic Pullman Foundation invites you to join us for an exciting weekend-long celebration of another important Pullman story: railroad innovation and the people who drive it.
Visitors will be able to explore three historic Pullman Cars from different eras at the 111th Metra station over the weekend. The 1923 NYC 3 will return, along with newcomers, the 1914 Francis L. Suter car, and the 1950 the Royal Street Observation car.
Experience the “RAILROADERS: JackDelano’s Homefront Photography” exhibition, organized by Center for Railroad Photography and Art and Chicago History Museum, opening in the renovated Pullman Exhibit Hall (formerly the shared Visitor Center). The exhibition is a striking visual exploration of the hard work and heroism of railway workers in the yard, on the trains and in the station during World War II and is accompanied by thoughtful biographies and interactive elements. RAILROADERS will run from May 14 through the end of the year.
Additionally, enjoy tours of the historic Factory Site, Hotel Florence, the neighborhood, and much more. The weekend will be a mix of free events and a single ticket for entry into others. Save by purchasing advance tickets today. Day-of admission will include a $5 surcharge. https://www.pullmanil.org/special-events/
