Jim Crow trains – C. Lenox Remond

April 28, 1843

Here Remond tells of having used private conveyance at heavy expense, in order to avoid Jim Crow cars on the Salem and Boston road.  Then he was informed that the train from Portland came through without a Jim Crow car on it. When he was refused a seat on that train other than in the “Jimmy” car, he remained in the station, and his “business was frustrated”; he was prevented from attending “the Convention in Waltham”.
