The All-Private Car
AAPRCO Silver Anniversary
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).

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!
