Professor Dopidad is a college professor on sabbatical to write about the Night Train’s journey.
“The Chicago Central Depot? Ah, yes - just as it was described - a castle, with towers and spires, befitting the lordly George Pullman! An American flag flies above. What a sight! I'll have to use that in my book. Trains, trains, trains! Glorious trains!”
A pragmatic Chicago lawyer who is unimpressed by the Night Train and its historic journey.
