Wanna buy your own dining car?

Okay, folks, this is our chance. Amtrak has put its boneyard up for sale—scores of dining cars, baggage cars, Santa Fe high-level cars and other odds and ends it no longer needs. You’ll find the shopping list here -- look for Sales of Equipment - Railcars.

Imagine the surprise on the Little Lady’s face on Christmas morning when trucks and cranes pull up with that new kitchen and dining room you promised her. You can look down upon your neighbors from your very own high-level coach. Your kids will love their own bunks in a baggage-dormitory. And all that junk you’ve been throwing into the basement? It will find a new home in a shiny 80-foot baggage car you can rename whatever you wish.

This is your once-in-a-lifetime chance, so don’t blow it. Bids are due soon.—Fred W. Frailey
