The three ex-WP California Zephyr cars that have operated in the West on many trips over recent years, have been sold to an unnamed buyer in the East. The last run of the cars on the original route through the Feather River Canyon, will occur July 6-8, 2018. Transfer to the new owner will occur sometime shortly after this trip.

It is with great sadness that we announce the last excursion using the popular California Zephyr private rail cars. These three classic passenger cars have been the backbone of our private car tours and charter train excursions for many years. The owners of these cars put the cars up for sale in mid 2017. Late last year a buyer began negotiations to purchase the cars. The present owners have said that negotiations continue but that it is expected the buyer will take delivery of the CZ cars shortly after this excursion. Once the purchase is complete these private cars will no longer be available for charter work on the West Coast and will be moved out of California and head east. At this time the name of the buyer is being kept under wraps until the deal is complete.


Details about this trip are on the link below:
