Private Varnish

From: "Kate Booth"

We are a group that attempts to find obscure information. The other night we were discussing a travel program we had seen regarding someone who had converted an old rail passenger car into a home. He had a private siding where he normally lived near Chicago. However, the program indicated that when ever he wanted to travel to another location, he would contact the railroad company and hook on to a train or a series of trains, going to where ever it was that he wanted to go.

Our questions not only revolves around the logistics of these travel plans, but mainly the cost of moving a rail car from point A to point B, assuming an open schedule.

Thank you for your help.

The best source for this information is The American Association Of Private Railroad Car Owners, Inc.

They even have a magazine Private Varnish.

We have a significant interest on acquiring or entering into a long term charter for a very nice private railroad car(s) that sleep at least 8 in 4 cabins each with private bath. Can you give us any leads?

Thank you.

Your best bet is to contact the American Association of Private Rail Car Owners (AAPRCO) which maintains a list of privately owned luxury cars available for charter, trip rental and so on.
