The American Association of Private Railroad Car Owners (AAPRCO) celebrated their Silver Anniversary private car convention at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum October 24-26, part of the Museum's celebration of 175 years of Railroading In America, a 16-month event spanning two years.
As it has every year since 1992 when John W. Reading prepared the very first route guide for passengers traveling on the all-private car train operated by Amtrak from Chicago to Hoboken, NJ for that year's private car convention, once again in 2002 the Association prepared a route guide for passengers traveling to Baltimore on the two Silver Anniversary convention trains (an eastern train from Philadelphia, a western train from Chicago).

Are you interested in rail travel in a private railcar? Click here for information on chartering a private railcar. AAPRCO holds their convention once each year in various cities. You can travel across the country in a private railcar to the convention as Ray and Saylor did by contacting the owner of one of the private railcars that will be going to the convention. But, you don't have to go to the AAPRCO convention to enjoy the luxury of travel in a private railcar. You can charter a private railcar any time of the year to take you to many destinations along the rails! Click here for more information!
