PULLMAN CARS ON THE BRIGHTON LINE

The first Pullman car ran on the London - Brighton service on Monday 1st November, 1875. This parlour car was built in the U.S.A. and assembled in 1875 at Derby by the Pullman Palace Car Company, a branch of the American organisation formed in 1867 by George Mortimer Pullman. This car was attached to a train of six new first class coached which left Victoria at 10.45 a.m. and ran non-stop to Brighton in 70 mins., a timing on the London - Brighton service which had been established as early as April, 1858. The Pullman supplementary charge was 1s. 6d. over he first class express fare.
