|1920 Cornell - Harvard Regatta Observation Train Ticket
Train would hold 3,500 spectators. 35 cars, each with 100 people.
Imagine a train with flatbed cars chugging down the shoreline, keeping pace with boats over the course, serving as rolling grandstands for fans lucky enough to be able to
get the exclusive ticket. Freight cars were cut down, by the Lehigh Valley RR, and furnished to meet the need for “observation cars” which ran slowly up the side of Cayuga Lake,
where passengers could follow the progress of Cornell’s crew team.
