This was just posted on Facebook:
"Our three new bi-level gallery cars (Former Chicago & Northwestern/Metra) have arrived on the property. These cars each seat 168 passengers on two levels. They feature heat and...wait for it... air conditioning. While we consider these cars modern, they were built in 1960. Look for the to be on our regular trains very soon."

All that remains are short portions of the truck, seat frames, and decorative interior hardware the rest of the car is new construction. A cupola was added to recreate the look of the original French Lick Streetcar.

Oh dear god no. Those things? Tourism cars? Air's one thing, but those are SMALL, and the starcases TIGHT. This is a good idea?

In accordance with our lease agreements with the Army, graffitists at JPG will be considered tresspassing and a national threat, and shot on sight.

From The Herald in Jasper:

Polar Express rail cars pause for repairs
 
By ALEXANDRA SONDEEN
Herald Staff Writer

JASPER — Three enormous, gray rail cars at the Jasper Train Depot are on their way to join the Polar Express train at the Indiana Railway Museum in French Lick.

Rick Olsen, assistant general manager at the French Lick Scenic Railway, said the 1960 Pullman Standard bi-level passenger cars were used until about 2005 by the Chicago and North Western Transportation Co. They were part of a holiday train in Marion, Ill., last year before they were put up for sale.

“They’re in really great shape,” Olsen said. “We’re doing a little bit of body repair here in Jasper, then they will go up to French Lick. I hope to have the first one in service by the first couple of weeks of July to offer the air-conditioned seating.”

The new cars will be the museum’s only air-conditioned cars. Their green-tinted windows will be polished and the cars will be rotated in and out of service as they are repainted green and white.

Each car seats 168 people with two-person bench seats on the lower level and single-person seats on the upper level. In comparison, the museum’s current coach cars seat 80.


Olsen said the railway’s wildly popular Polar Express train, operated in November and December, was the main reason for purchasing the additional cars.

“We’ve been looking at more cars since right after the first year of Polar Express,” Olsen said. This year will be the Polar Express’ third in French Lick. “These cars kind of popped up out of nowhere. They’re very turn-key and that’s why we jumped on the deal.”

With the addition of the three cars, the Polar Express will increase its capacity for each trip by about 40 percent from 468 riders per trip to 652. One of the original eight Polar Express cars will be taken out of the lineup for a total of 10 cars.

The upper-level seats will not be sold for the Polar Express excursions, Olsen said.

The cars cost about $30,000 each, which Olsen said is less than a few other cars he looked at that were in worse shape. The revenue will come from ticket sales for Polar Express and other theater trains the railway operates throughout the year.

Olsen expects the three cars to leave Jasper for French Lick on Friday.

Erie 1 was sold to a private owner.  Jacksonville and the C&NW RDC are currently for sale.
