Broadway Limited Check out time

Since the Broadway Limited was an all private room train, essentially a hotel on wheels, did Pullman, or later Pennsy afford the guests some time in their rooms after arrival in NY Penn or Chicago Union ? Or did they have to be out when the Train arrived

Arrival time. The 16 hour train put you into Chicago at 9 a. m. and New York 9:30 a. m., so off you went. The equipment was then immediately moved out of the stations for cleaning, servicing and restocking in preparation of the return journey next afternoon.
