The Pennsylvania Railroad Spirit of St. Louis. Anyone traveling to or through Columbus from points east would travel on trains with names like the "Spirit of St Louis". These trains were express sleepers on which travelers would board in the afternoon in New York or Washington, enjoy cocktails in the club car, then to the dining car and enjoy five-star cuisine in an elegant dining car. Guests would then retire to their rooms as the engineer carefully guided their way towards Licking County.
