Dover Harbor Ready for Grand Central

We have great news!  Our classic Pullman Dover Harbor has had the steel that failed last fall replaced, been inspected by Amtrak, and cleared for the rails.  She will debut on 8 May  on a trip to New York City to be part of the Parade of Trains on 11 & 12 as part of the 100th Anniversary of Grand Central Terminal. This is a fitting setting for Dover Harbor, who operated on the New York Central in the 30s and 40s regularly, including runs out of Grand Central Terminal.  We are selling ticket1923 Pullman sleeper-lounge Dover Harbors to and from New York for the trip.  See our Upcoming Trips for more information. 

We thank all those who helped us get our classic Pullman back on the rails.
