Sleep in a Pullman Rail Car

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Indianapolis is in the city's old Union Station. In keeping with the railroad theme, there are two full-size trains that have been converted to hotel rooms. Statues next to them look like old-time passengers getting ready to board [There's even a set of railroad hobos]. Even if you don't stay there, the hotel staff is very friendly and they allowed me to wander about and take photos.
