Toilets on the old heavyweight Pullmans in the "compartment ".
Author: ApproachCircuit

I have a number of very nice hard back books on the old pullmans with many interior photos but
none showing the toilet. Was it in a small annex?
Or did it "pop out" from a small doored cabinet?

Thanx

ATSF had P-S lightweight sleeping cars which had toilets that were under the sink in your bedroom.  When you opened the door beneath the sink, the toilet folded outward.  Your throne was then available!  

As you might guess, these bedrooms were not popular.  People like the enclosed toilet compartment.

Does not look enclosed from this drawing:

On the picture, look to the lower left (in Compartments A and B).

The toilet ("hopper") is indicated by a dashed outline, that means it's hidden in/under a cabinet, etc.

In the drawing rooms, the toilet and washstand is in its own room.

I think it's a hinged cover that folds up against the wall.
