I first recorded these Pullman Sleeper Cars in 2013. Then revisited them a second time in 2015. With the recent announcement that Iowa Pacific Hoosier State train would be reverting back to Amtrak equipment at end of February – I had an excuse to visit Indianapolis a third time.
On my first trip I stayed at Omni Severin Hotel. My second I had a room at Crowne Plaza Grand Hall and Conference Center – formerly Union Station – but did not sleep in one of the Pullmans. During my recent adventure I did spend 2 evenings in a Pullman room.
Recorded February 12th & 13th 2017.
