First Class Private Railcar Journey

Thursday-Sunday, October 28-31, 2010

Come join us this Autumn for a weekend First Class voyage aboard the classic 1930s Pullman Dover Harbor railroad car to the charming coastal Deep South!

With this rail-only trip from D.C., you’ll choose your own tour destination—Charleston, South Carolina or Savannah, Georgia. Both cities offer a range of delights, including a full palette of history, cuisine, culture, and adventure. To learn more or to find events, sites, or a hotel, visit or

You’ll depart mid-morning from Washington’s Union Station on Thursday, October 28th with Amtrak’s Palmetto via the former Atlantic Coast Line, to arrive in Charleston or Savannah by late evening. Our gracious white-jacketed stewards will serve you lunch and dinner, along with plentiful snacks and your choice of refreshing, made-to-order cocktails. While on board, you can enjoy the ever-changing scenery and relax in the comfortable lounge or on the open-air vestibule.

Neither destination requires a car to see many of the architectural and historic sites or to enjoy delicious regional restaurants. You can tour either compact, enchanting city on foot after taxiing to a downtown hotel. Or, you can rent a car to visit outlying sites or the Atlantic beaches—with advance reservation, Hertz has a taxi arrangement to their nearby rental facilities.

You’ll return home on Sunday, October 31st via the northbound Palmetto, departing Savannah in early morning and departing Charleston mid-morning. Your onboard Halloween service will include a delectable brunch and dinner, along with cocktails and softer drinks, for an evening arrival in Washington, in time to enjoy a good night’s sleep at home before a new week.

Save $40.00 per person when you reserve and pay by cash, check, or money order by Saturday, August 28, 2010.

Includes round-trip rail travel only on Dover Harbor from Washington DC to Charleston or Savannah, including meals, snacks, beverages, wines, and spirits as described.
