Remember Riding the Sleeper?

Record #:
The pleasant overnight trip by train from Asheville to Washington or New York is likely to soon be a thing of the past, as the Southern Railway has petitioned for a hearing before the North Carolina Utilities Commission regarding such a change in its passenger service. The passenger business, they claim, is losing too much money and they would like to discontinue the service. This is the last available rail service out of Asheville and all of Western North Carolina.
