Positioning Move - CHICAGO to CINCINNATI - on a DOME car!
« on: August 24, 2012, 12:54:52 PM »
I just got the email below, am posting it in case anyone else would be interested.







OK Railfans,

Here's a last minute opportunity to jump aboard the Observatory dome car as it travels from Chicago to Cincinnati NEXT WEEK.  The private car the Observatory (http://www.cincinnatirailway.com/vistadome.htm) will be returning home after a long trip out west.

Javier Garza will accompany the car for this trip.  He will meet you in Chicago's Union Station to escort you to the private car once the cars arrive into the station.  The Observatory will be on Amtrak's 50 Cardinal with a scheduled departure of 5:45pm on August 30.  Arrival into Cincinnati's Union Terminal is scheduled for August 31st 3:17am.  You can choose to depart the train at that time with advanced notice to Javier or you may remain on the train as we move onto our storage facility in Norwood with arrival around 6:30am.  All guests will be asked to depart the train no later than 10:00am.

First come, first served.  We are limiting this event to 6 passengers.  $120.00 per person.  There will be no bedrooms available.  All guests will have access to the dome and lounge area of the Observatory.  Javier will provide a light dinner upon departure from Chicago.  A snack or two may be available during the evening.  Beer, wine, water, and soft drinks will be provided.  A continental breakfast will be provided in the morning prior to your departure from the train.

Simply call us at 513-791-7245 to book.  Also feel free to respond via email.

This is the Northern Pacific dome car correct?

Yes, I may have even ridden in that one during its first life on the NP as I took a round trip from Butte to Chicago on the NCL back in 1970. My son and I rode most of the way in the first seat of the dome, he on one side and I on the other. Fell asleep one night watching the blades fall as we sped across the North Dakota.
Have a good and safe day!
