Cardinal's Train
4th Car:
St. Mary of the Lake

The fourth car of the Cardinal's Train was the Pullman dining car St. Mary of the Lake.

The car was originally Pullman heavyweight dining car #16 and was lettered 'New York Central' only for this trip. The chefs, of course, were hand-picked for this assignment.

Chartered in 1844, the University of St. Mary of the Lake was and is the principal seminary and school of theology for the Archdiocese of Chicago. After the 'Red Special', the car was returned to Pullman paint and service until sold to the Erie in 1930.
