The streamline era brought unexpected complexity to the operations of the Pullman Company. The handful of exceptions to Pullman's standard livery of dark olive green suddenly proliferated as railroads requested sleeping cars to match their colorful new streamliners. How did Pullman's mechanical department keep tabs on the lettering diagrams and the paint colors? Peter A. Falles, mechanical inspector for the Pullman Company, kept a series of notebooks containing that information. After his retirement, he gave these notebooks and a set of paint samples to Arthur Dubin. Dubin, a longtime admirer of passenger trains worldwide, has combined those note-books and paint samples with photos from his collection to create this guide to the variety of paint schemes found on Pullman cars from the 1930s to the 1960s, until the advent of Amtrak and VIA Rail Canada.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Arthur Detmers Dubin's interest in passenger trains has been lifelong. He is known for his two monumental books on North American passenger trains, Some Classic Trains and More Classic Trains, and for his collection of Pullman and passenger train memorabilia. The collection is now largely at the Smithsonian Institution and the State Historic Library Division of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. By profession an architect, he retired recently as a senior partner of the distinguished Chicago architec-tural firm Dubin, Dubin & Moutoussamy. His knowledge of transportation was important in the firm's successful undertaking of projects for the Washington (D.C.) Metro, the Chicago & North Western Railway, the Chicago Transit Authority, and American Airlines. He has served on numerous advisory boards and commissions in passenger transportation.
