      A bit of an update... 

       

      The grand entry to the throne room. The "1st class toilet" that Pete mentioned will go here somewhere. I'm also thinking of hacking that ad to read "If ya gotta go... Go Pullman"

       

       

      The shower curtain and towels. The bath towel's printing was off, so Zazzle's reprinting it. The mining poster and items on either side of the window will get some framed up P'man ad's from old magazines.

       

       

      The other side of the pseudo-berth. 

       

       

      The over-toilet view...

       

       

      And the exit, with a view of various Pullman trinkets. 

       

       

      That's about it for now on this,

      Hahaa! That would be cool, Eric... A little seat-mounted, water (and pee) proof projector, shining onto the porcelain, you bet!  

       

      [edit] I should have replied, "No, but anyone outside that window gets a nice spritz effect."

      I remember that!

      Made the 'no flushing in station' sign necessary!

      When I told my dad that I saw that, he insisted that I didn't see that.

      I was a docent at the B&ORR Museum for a while, and if we had a school party I would gross them out by showing them the pipe from the underside of the toilet on the Royal Blue coach,

      Guys;

       

      The logic of that time was that the effluents would be spread in a very thin layer, due to the speed of an express train.  Once on the ties and ballast. the sun's UV rays would eliminate any germs.  Of course, those conditions were not present at a station stop, hence the sign.  Today's chemical toilets are a much better solution - just so long as they get emptied and refreshed regularly.

       

      Best, David Meashey

      The logic of that time  . . .

      The restored railways in the UK make extensive use of BR Mk 1 coaches, which were available cheap as BR invented the Mk2, etc.  The Mk 1 toilets do flush with water, but on to the track. If the UK Health & Safety guys decide that they have to start using holding tanks, like a modern coach, the expense will kill the restored railways.

      Cliff,

        Just make sure when you flush the toilet the lights go dim as that's what it's all about  !

      "Just make sure the lights go dim when you flush the toilet."   HMmmmmmmmmmmmm!  I think under those conditions I would be looking to fire a plumber AND an electrician!

       

      Have fun, David Meashey

      Dave,

       It was only a recommendation to Cliff.  I have that issue here and still trying to figure out how city water makes the lights dim when I flush. However I personally enjoy it myself!

      "Dave,

      Rooster;

       

      So sorry, thought you were joking.  None of the towns I lived in when I was in Pennsylvania had such a problem.  Makes me wonder whether two utility systems are somehow combining where they should not.  I had an electric furnace once that would dim the lights when the heating banks surged on, but never experienced a toilet doing that.  Hope somebody can fix that.

      Rooster, after trying hard to figure out why that would happen, and failing, I just realized (once again) that was your whole point... 

       

      BTW, the closest I could come to a solution was that, with each flush, you were subconsciously bemoaning your water bill. Dude, the lights aren't dimming, you're just squinting your eyes in pain!!
