For full details and order form click on "View all trips" below and click on Trip 19-E. The order deadline is September 6, unless the trip has sold out before then. Avoid disappointment, order now! Go to Trips, View All Trips, click on the appropriate link, email or call (312) 829-4500.
A new opportunity for a private varnish trip with our partner is now available. The full details and order form for Trip 19-HB-2 with the Hollywood Beach are in the Trips section. The Hollywood Beach is one of those sleeper-lounge cars originally built for New York to Florida service having extra-large side windows and overhead windows in the lounge section. It's the closest thing to a dome car that can operate in the limited clearance areas of the Northeast Corridor running into Penn Station. Those who have been riding with us for a while may remember it was on at least one of our Galena trips in the early 2000's. Don't miss this chance!
