The Travel Channel is hhosting a show on private rail cars on Sunday evening, March 3, called Tricked Up Trains. The show features a number of private cars at the AAPRCO Convention last fall in Chattanooga. Unfortunately my car did not make that trip. But this show will give you a good look at how some of these vintage cars have been fixed up and continue to operate in style. If you want more information on private rail car trips, go to If you want more information on my car Promontory Point, go to
