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.
(Note: This travelogue used to include IPIX Virtual Tour photos of many Private Varnish Railroad Cars. When the IPIX company went out of business, these IPIX 360x360 photos ceased working. If we ever figure out how to get these photos working again, we will repost them to this travelogue.)

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 what 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!
