Larger Sleeping Car Berths.
One of the railway companies I
that   owns  and  operates the
sleeping cars in service   on it
lines, is the Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul.
The sleeping cars on this line
were   formerly  Pullman cars,
operated by the Pullman Company, but for a  dozen  years
past the railway  company has
owned and operated the sleeping car equipment.   In building
its sleeping cars,  a departure
from the old   standard pattern
of cars has been made to the extent of adding about six inches
to the width and height of the
sleepers. This permits of wider
and higher berths.   Length has
also been  added to  berths, so
that comfort is found in them
which is   lacking in  ordinary
sleeping cars.
These large cars are in service on practically all of the
lines of the St. Paul Road, and
are very popular with the
traveling public.
