Experience the excitement of railroad travel on your private car

Since 1988, Classic Rail Cars has been the choice of adventurers and those seeking a unique vacation. Classic Rail Cars owns and operates nine railroad passenger cars that are available for lease or charter.

The Blue Ridge is currently being used in shortline and dinner train service on the Northern Central Railway, in New Freedom, PA. The Blue Ridge still wears it's L&N-inspired blue livery from recent service as part of the Tennessee 2000 consist. The Imperial Sands is now based in Northern New Jersey on the tracks of the Morristown and Erie Railroad. Both cars are available for lease.
