    In the current issue of ‘Passenger Train Journal’ there’s an article on the final days of the Pullman Company in 1967-68. The cover of a Pullman Brochure is shown. Here’s the rest of that brochure:

    Pullman did have a large variety of equipment still operating at the end.   

    Not mentioned in that brochure was the master room with shower that a few trains offered.   There was also a duplex single room, different than a duplex roomette.   And IIRC, there was either a compartment-double bedroom or a drawing room-double bedroom suite available (not sure which), which would accommodate up to five adult's.

    Also not mentioned, were the single and double slumbercoaches,  but then, those were not considered 'Pullman' accommodation's....

    I'm pretty sure VIA offers a "Cabin for 2 with Shower". Is that what you're talking about?

    Nah.  Everything is icky orange these days.   Admittedly, making criminals feel like they attend Syracuse makes sense.

    But, that does remind me that the Indiana basketball team wears pants like his.

    The Canadian cabins you are referring to are modern edition's on either the Renaissance sleeper's, or the Prestige class.    They are different from the classic Pullman Master Rooms that were featured on The Broadway Limited, the Crescent Limited, and the California Zephyr.

    It depends which train you are on. On the Canadian, the bedroom has an enclosed toilet but no shower. On the Ocean, the same room (very same set up), there is a shower in the enclosed toilet like Amtrak’s bedroom.

    There is a shower down the hall on the Canadian.
