Such an unique lodging venue! Its not everyday you can say you slept in a boxcar!
We stayed in the CONDUCTOR SUITE 17 & 18 May 2008. This was a full box car with a king-bed room, with a faux fireplace, in one end, the bath, complete with a tub, in the middle, and a living room in the other end of the boxcar. Fine furnishing and immaculate cleanliness! Very quite. We loved our stay and would definitely return. The only thing missing was the train whistle!
