No railroad in the country has taken greater pains to accommodate people who go to summer resorts than have been taken by the Housatonic [line]. Through cars on express trains are run to and from New York in about four hours and a half, and, if the traveler does not care to take the drawing-room car, he can ride in a car that almost seems like one, with its brussels carpet, toilet-room, fine upholstery and cabinet finish. He can leave New York in the morning and eat a noon dinner in Berkshire, or leave near the close of business hours and eat a late dinner or supper here. The facilities for return are equally good, for he can leave Berkshire at several convenient times, the last one being about 5 p.m., when an express train leaves, to arrive in New York about nine.
