The year 1967 was not kind to premium passenger trains. In the last few months of that year, the last two all-Pullman trains in the United States—the Pennsylvania's Broadway and the Illinois Central's Panama Limited—would submit to the inevitable and add coaches to their consists. While I.C. would market its coach additions separately as the Magnolia Star to preserve the fiction that the Panama itself remained all-Pullman, the Pennsy would consolidate the Broadway Limited with its secondary train, the General. By year's end, there would remain only one all-Pullman train in North America—El Tapatio, operated between Mexico City and Guadalajara by the National Railways of Mexico.

In the twilight of its career as an all-Pullman train, the Broadway remained a first-class operation. In an era of speed reductions and schedule padding, it continued to make its westbound run in 16 hours and eastbound in a scheduled 15. The observation car still featured the oversize master rooms with shower baths. No, it could not last and in fact it would not last the end of the year. But while it lasted, it would continue to be one of the classiest acts on the rails.

As mentioned above, by year's end the Broadway would be consolidated with the P.R.R.'s General. The surviving train would retain the Broadway Limited name but, like a retiring baseball star, the train's numbers—the famed Nos. 28 and 29—would be withdrawn from service, never to be used again by the Pennsy. The surviving remnants of the Broadway Limited would operate under the numbers 48 and 49 previously used by the General
