French Lick Scenic Railway RPCX 1710

project description

In 2018, we undertook a project for our friends in Indiana, the French Lick Scenic Railway. Owners of another Crossroads project, dome car NP 550. The car will also serve as First Class seating during their popular POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride events in the winter. We started with a former Ringling Bros. circus train car, whose life began as the Norfolk and Western’s Pulaski County, and transformed it into an ADA-compliant diner/lounge with a centrally-located, wheelchair-accessible bathroom, a stainless kitchen with dishwashers, food warmers, and fridges, as well as seating for 48. Delivered in December of 2018, this car will be featured heavily in FLSR’s 2019 schedule.
