The American Association of Private Rail Car Owners (AAPRCO) is a non-profit organization whose members preserve this wonderful form of travel.
Those inclined to savor the trip, as well as the destination, might choose to take a slower paced journey and relax. Inclement weather can often make a cruise ship voyage a dicey affair, but it’s never an issue when cruising America on a private railcar.
Their annual Charter Guide provides the opportunity for readers to become acquainted with the wide selection of car types available for charter from various AAPRCO member owners and organizations throughout the country. Cars and organizations presented here can also be seen on the AAPRCO website at www.aaprco.com and additional information can be accessed through individual website links provided here and on the AAPRCO website.
You will find many different types of cars with a wide range of features and functions. In addition, the Guide contains information on individual cars, as well as providing definitions of the terms used in passenger railroading.
If you are considering chartering for pleasure or business or as a unique stationery hospitality "suite," the Charter Guide is a valuable resource.
