Bill and Debbie Hatrick's popular mid-century passenger cars, recently "retired" from regular Amtrak mainline service, are looking for a new home. Our two cars are well maintained and are prime examples of post war passenger equipment, a 1949 built (ex SP) club lounge featuring a stunning main salon, a classic quarter circle bar and a very rare barbershop. The chair car was built in 1950 for UP as a 44 seater (two benches currently removed for food service), it features a comfortable chair compartment with excellent windows and a small kitchen (but big enough to serve 76 people a full single entree dinner). The chair car also is generator equipped and can easily backfeed the lounge.

We are looking for a property were all can benefit with the addition of a couple of premium cars with a combined 72 seats. We would consider relocating to be near the cars if a long term relationship were to develop. To see the cars, please visit http://www.larail.com (click on the appropriate link to see Overland Trail and Pacific Trail) or visit the Heritage Rail Alliance page for additional info and photos at: https://www.atrrm.org/2018/06/private-r ... or-a-home/ Email - ConductorBill@LARail.com

As additional information, both cars have been "gently reconfigured"
for special events. Furniture removed and dance floors added, for example.
