|Perhaps the most opulent example of "Private
Varnish" ever created, the car has antique furnishings valued at well over
a half million dollars. A marble fireplace, hand blown glass chandeliers,
Italian frescos and richly upholstered couches in its lounge give you a
sense of the grand fashion in which it was created. Experiencing Luscious
Beebe and Charles Clegg's 1955 Venetian renaissance baroque style private
rail car is a one of a kind experience.
When it was created it was said to be the most lavishly appointed private
car ever made. In addition to its stunning lounge the car has three state
rooms capable of sleeping up to 8 passengers , a shower, dining room for
up to 8, a full kitchen and crews quarters for 2. The Virginia City is
the perfect car for a family rail excursion, or as a lead car for a private
train. Paired with the Yosemite Falls or silver solarium the car can accommodate
up to 18 guests for overnight travel. For higher capacity try adding the
Royal Gorge to give a total carrying capacity of 40 perfect for a day trip
to Reno, Portland, or Los Angeles.
