The Kansas Platform Car

The Kansas features an open-air platform, the kind from which politicians and Hollywood celebrities once greeted their followers during whistle-stop tours. Composed of a lounge, kitchen, dining room and three bedrooms, The Kansas replicates and in many ways surpasses traditional business railcars once used by railroad executives.

The Solarium Lounge features six plush easy chairs and a couch – all upholstered in beautiful fabric imported from Holland.  You and your guests can take in the scenery as it unfolds on three sides of the car.  The back door leads to the platform, a “rolling back porch” that provides an unobstructed, open-air vantage point.

Two of the bedrooms are large master suites that have two berths each and share a common shower/bathroom.  The third bedroom sleeps two and has a private toilet; it is a smaller room originally designed to accommodate staff.
