The pressed steel Pullman playset measures 11 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches, and was designed to resemble both a Pullman train car and a little suitcase. The leather handle made it easy to carry on a real train trip.
Two clear windows allow the little passengers to look outside, while a third window is covered with a decal printed to give the look of frosted glass.
The Pullman opens from the back, revealing a compartment tucked behind green curtains.
Behind the curtains, a cozy compartment is unveiled, complete with benches and a fold away table. I've fitted it out with a tablecloth and some refreshments for the miniature French doll and Steiff bear travelling inside.
Above the passengers' heads, the sleeping berth is tucked away, ready to be pulled down in the evening.
Here's the berth pulled down, complete with sheets, pillows, and blankets.
To the left of the compartment is a small closet holding a porcelain sink, perfect for freshening up after a long journey.
I also found some old dollhouse sized luggage, perfectly scaled for the Pullman playset. The largest is a cardboard candy container, made in Germany in the early 1900s. The tiny red hat box is also German, while the black tin trunk was made by the Marx company.
All aboard the Playskool Pullman!
