|APPENDIX 3 - DIAGRAMS
There were two types of Diagrams: Ticket Office Diagrams and Working
Diagrams. Both Diagrams provided a graphical representation of
a car's accommodations (see Appendix 2). The Ticket Office Diagram
was completed at the ticket office or by reservation clerks to
provide a location to supply the information for a specific reservation
for specific space (i.e. room, section or berth). Each Diagram
card provided the space reservations, car name, line number, dates
and train number. These cards were picked up by Pullman Conductors
wherever the space might be sold along the way. While the Ticket
Office Diagram couldn't be altered, the reverse side provided
similar space for the Conductor to make working notes - this was
the Working Diagram. A car with similar accommodations might have
a different Diagram. For instance, there were over 5 different
Diagrams for 10 (Roomette) - 6 (Bedroom) cars, as the physical
location might be different, or the partitions allowing en suite
use might be located differently.
The Diagrams are referenced in Pullman's List
Of Cars (and Descriptive List of Cars), a section within the List
is entitled: Capacity of Cars as Shown by Form Numbers of Diagrams
The diagrams linked are 1950s and 1960s era for
the most part, but they provide an illustration of the concept.
More Diagrams may be added in the future, and
they will likely be made into separate pages (one per Diagram).
