Passenger Car Restoration

Check out our history laden rolling stock of passenger cars that includes former Nickel Plate 62 and 90 as well as Mt. Baxter and the recently completed NYC RR Business Car America.

Live Project Updates

Past restoration projects include our own Nickle Plate passenger cars 62 and 90, Mt. Baxter and more recently NYC RR Business Car Number 4, America and cars for private owners as well. Currently we are working on windows and rusted window columns on Mt. Baxter with funds received through John Emery grants received last year and this year. The B&O passenger car in the photo above was sold and refurbished for use as an office. It can be seen in Hartville near the train station.

NKP 62 suffered some broken windows and exterior paint damage while it was on location in Mississippi last year for the filming of the ABC Network mini-series “Women of the Movement”. Volunteers have been working to replace the broken windows and also replace a few rotted window frames.

Replacement window frames and sills, made from mahogany, have been assembled to the glass panes, primed and painted and await installation into NKP 62.

“America” is returning to Cleveland in September after riding the rails throughout the United States for the past year on excursion service to an individual who used the car as his office on wheels while seeing the country. Maintenance and repairs will soon be underway to ready the car for possible excursion service in early 2023.
