The 1960's was a turbulent period for the US railroads. The airplane and automobile were sucking away passenger traffic. The government was giving them problems over freight rates. Railroads wanted to dump passenger trains but had to fight government to do it. Many trains did com off in the 60's, but the PRR still had some class. You could still get swordfish in the PRR dining cars in 1962.
