The New York Central Lines provided 1935 convention attendees with "The Water Level Route," where guests traveled three different places by train: Greencastle, Indiana; White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia; and Washington, D.C. Trains were considered elegant and formal in this time period, so the menu included was served in a fine dining atmosphere. While the service was formal, the sleeping conditions may not be perceived as such to a modern-day viewer; attendees slept in bunk beds! One interesting fact to note about the context of the increased number of alcohol ads in the menu: this convention took place two years after Prohibition was lifted, so these companies increased their advertising in any way possible.
