PAXX Rail bought six or seven cars. Including two HEP Gens. With the intent of selling them after rebuilding them. I strongly doubt that will be the case.

Cars are not all sold and you. Can get them as low as ten grand

I was talking to the owners of "Dearing" last week, and learned they have bought one of the Sleepers from the Circus Train. They did mention which one, but I don't remember what they said.

What wonderful news. Can anyone provide some specifics? I would like to buy, own and operate my own private sleeper car. How much would it cost (approximately)? Also, any estimate of repairs/renovation? Also, annual operating expenses. Thanks!!
