DINING EN ROUTE. An experimental journey of the new Pullman dining and smoking cat which it is intended to run between London and Leeds, on and after the 1st of November, was made on the Great Northern Railway last Saturday, from London to Peterborough. The train consisted of a Pullman drawing room car, with smoking apart- ment, and a dining-room car with kitchen. The traveller may walk from one end of the cars to the other, a gangway connecting the two can. The resources of the kitchen were practically tested, a dinner which was excellently cooked being served. Although the train was travelling at the rate of 50 miles an hoar there was no inconvenience of any kind experienced, and the experiment was brought to a successful conclusion with coffee, also made and served in the car. The charge for dinner-which will be equal to that served at a first class restaurant —is not to exceed half a-crown and the admission to the Pull. man car will be charged, as at present, proportionately to the distance travelled.
