We had a great time staying in the Palace Car. My husband and I went for my birthday, and it was a unique, very relaxing time and very private. The whirlpool tub was great, always a nice feature for an intimate evening. Though the trains went by very frequently day and night, I did not find it disturbing or annoying, but very fitting since we were in a train car! I actually enjoyed hearing the trains go by. We also enjoyed the very small town and ate dinner at the bowling alley. I love the small town culture. I would stay again some day.
