Here’s the Presidential Pullman used by Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower.  This postcard isn’t postmarked, so it is very difficult to figure the date of the postcard.

the train car is no longer in Fort Lauderdale. Now it is in Miami at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum. It’s now part of a far larger exhibit of other train cars and exhibits. The museum is adjacent to the Metro Zoo. There is a minimal charge to tour the property. There is also a well stocked gift shop full of railroad goodies.

Here’s the address of the Gold Coast Railroad Museum:
12450 SW 152nd St.
Miami,  33177

Here’s the telephone number:
(305) 253-0063
