The great streamliner trains – the Twentieth Century Limited, Capitol Limited and Santa Fe Super Chief – consisted of a series of specialized cars, designed and engineered to meet the needs of the passenger. The cars epitomized the sleek architectural style of the era and created functional intimate places where rail travelers could socialize, view the landscape, dine with others and relax in private. The American Orient Express keeps this tradition alive.
All our rail cars are authentic, restored both to preserve history and to incorporate contemporary convenience and comfort. Unified by the dark mahogany walls and adorned with delicate marquetry, they reflect the aesthetics and attention to detail established by George Pullman, the first builder of luxury rail cars.
Soak up the sun’s rays or the starry velvet night in the dome car. The glass-enclosed dome car offers 360-degree viewing. Plush upholstered couches, chairs, booths and tables are ideal for board games, conversation, or time alone. In the 1950s, the dome was advertised in National Geographic as state-of-the-art in rail innovation. Today, its practical construction makes it a classic. Built by the Budd Company in 1953 for the Southern Pacific’s Daylight, this car seats 72 people in an upper-level glass enclosure that affords a 360° view of the surrounding countryside and is equipped with a bar, library, a through passage on the lower level and the Passenger Services Office.
The 1940s-era lounge car, originally built for the Union Pacific Railroad, is decidedly sophisticated, with lavish fresh floral arrangements, comfortable seating, and a full, professionally tended bar. In the early evening, cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres are served here. After dinner, gather around the baby grand, where our pianist plays your favorites by Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael and Cab Calloway. The lounge car has been redesigned to accommodate a baby grand piano, a full service bar, comfortable couches and lounge chairs.
Lustrous mahogany panels, gleaming brass fixtures, sleek lines, and plush upholstered chairs and couches — welcome to our legendary New York observation car. Relax in its spectacular viewing salon. Sit back and savor a cocktail, marvel at the scenery, converse with fellow travelers . you’re reliving the past. The observation car features plush swivel rockers, with slender tables for writing, playing cards, reading, or sipping refreshments. The car itself evokes a time of romantic and adventurous rail travel. With its bow-tailed window seats, it has earned the nickname, the Lookout Lounge. The observation car has been appointed with a circular bay window which makes this an elegant place to watch the rails and passing scenery from the end of the train — bringing up the “markers” — as trainmen might say of the last car on the GrandLuxe Rail Journeys.
Savor outstanding cuisine at elegant tables with an ever-changing view. A visit to the dining car has been, from its introduction in 1868, the high point of any train trip. When you step into the dining room, you enter an intimate atmosphere. The dining cars seat up to 88 passengers; they were reconfigured from their original state to give passengers a more comfortable dining experience. A banquet, decorated with fresh cut flowers, divides the room and tables for two or four invite conversation. An attendant in formal attire beckons you. You are seated, ready to partake in epicurean pleasures of the highest order, prepared by chefs d’ cuisine who have carefully planned a menu of recognized favorites and regional specialties.
Vintage Motor Spares
Even with motoring costs at an all time high and Gatso cameras on every corner, there’s still a lot of fun to be had when out and about on the road – if you drive a classic that is.
If you like cars but are becoming increasingly tired of the pace and pressure of modern motoring, then nothing can compare to the relaxing pleasure of driving a classic along a favourite road with the sun shining, the radio belting out an equally memorable golden oldie and feeling good about yourself. As alternative medicine goes, it simply can’t be bettered.
Of course, you can’t talk about old cars without starting off the age-old debate of just what is a classic car? There’s no definite answer to this.. But rest assured you don’t need to buy a Ferrari to say you own a classic!
At Classic Cars For Sale magazine we like all types: family cars, sports cars, vintage cars, British classic cars and even vans – because we define a classic as a vehicle that has stood the test of time and is now fondly remembered for putting fun into driving and ownership. In a word it’s down to character – lots of it!
And the good news is that ‘Classic Cars UK’ is doing very well even in these depressed times and this is because canny motorists have realised that apart from providing enormous fun, owning a classic car can also be a shrewd investment for the future or even an heirloom to pass down the family line, as many have done so.
The beauty of our hobby is that you don’t need to be a lottery winner to join in and feel welcome. It’s fantastic to own a Ferrari, of course, but you can have just as much fun and fulfilment by looking at cheap classic cars that can be bought for perhaps just hundreds of pounds. Classic car sales are to be found everywhere – private sales, auctions and even specialist classic car dealers who both sell and buy classics along with repairing and restoring them. By and large they are a friendly helpful bunch and a world away from your usual motor dealer because they love classics as much as we do!
It’s important to remember that one the hidden joys of owning a classic car is the friendly new world that is unlocked as soon as you turn the ignition key, care of a superb social scene that comes free with every classic. Special car shows, driving events and tours, motorsport or simply a get together down the local along with fellow enthusiasts… Once you own a classic car, it’s down to you just how much you want to become engrossed in this new enjoyable pastime. Be warned however, it’s contagious but you’ll enjoy every minute of it – even when toiling under the bonnet!
If this has whetted your appetite for a classic car then make sure you buy Classic Cars For Sale each month – or do it the easy way and take out a subscription. Every issue is packed with hundreds of classic cars for sale, backed by dedicated buying guides and road tests on every make and model, plus all the latest news and views on the burgeoning and brilliant British classic car scene.
Since 2007, sales of new replica cars have fallen off noticeably, as market attention has turned to modern streetcar vehicles. However, replica cars are still being offered today by Gomaco Trolley and other suppliers. While they demand a higher price tag, new vehicles also come with the advantage of lower maintenance costs, higher reliability, a more predictable price and delivery schedule, as well as the ability to incorporate modern features such as air conditioning and ADA accommodations.
As an alternative to replica cars, some systems have acquired cars from overseas or restored vintage cars from their local area. Unfortunately, the pool of original equipment surviving intact from America’s trolley era is relatively small, and those that remain in the wild are typically without running gear and other vital operational components. Although there are still a good many unrestored PCC cars out there, conventional trolleys in complete form are largely in the collections of railway museums around the country. Depending on the car’s condition, museums may be unwilling to expose these rare pieces to the potentially consumptive use of daily service on a busy transit operation. Maintenance of vintage vehicles can also be a problem, owing to evolving safety standards, lack of spare parts and difficulty in finding the necessary expertise to maintain the older technology.
The largest sources of overseas cars have been Australia, Portugal and Italy. Large scale exports of Australian trams ended in about 1990 when the government decided it was better to retain its retired trams, and the export of Portuguese cars also ended as the supply of cars was exhausted. Throughout the 1990’s, cars have been available from Milan, (and remain so) although the fact that they are single-ended limits their utility.
Today, opportunities to import trams from Australia are once again available; Newstead Tramcars and Bendigo Tramways offer vintage parts, as well as entire trolleys, for sale. The Bendigo website includes a page detailing the latest offerings. Additional cars may also become available again in Australia , see our Australian Trams page for more information.
In the US, the Gomaco Trolley Company offers complete trolleys and refurbishment services. The Brookville Equipment Corporation manufactures new running gear, refurbishes trolleys (including major rebuilds of PCC cars) and is also pursuing the replica trolley market. TIG/m is also offering battery powered replica trolleys.
It should also be noted that the majority of the new replica cars built to date have used some percentage of refurbished vintage components, typically trucks, motors, controllers, and some air brake system components. The extent to which refurbished components are used on future orders will depend on the requirements of the individual customer, and the types of parts the car builder has access to. A number of cars have used parts from retired Melbourne trams, although the export ban has effectively dried up this source. Additionally, Milan has also proven to be an excellent resource, and a great many parts have been acquired from this city as their older trams are gradually phased out. New Orleans is notable as being an exception to the use of refurbished parts, opting instead to purchase everything new for its 23 Canal St. replica cars, including the trucks and motors. The New Orleans cars use newly built PCC-derivative running gear and modern chopper control.
Other factors influencing the development of replica cars includes the 2005 introduction of the APTA Standard for Vintage / Heritage Trolley Vehicle Equipment , which provides important new guidelines for vehicle manufacturers and operators. The table below details all of the replica vehicles built or on order in North America since 1984. Corrections, updates, and additional information would, of course, be welcome.

If you are selling an antique, vintage or classic vehicle you will need to know how to calculate an “asking” price. Most vehicle buyers will expect you to be willing to negotiate the price which means you will start by asking for an amount above what you are willing to accept. If you are one of the many people who dislike bartering like a used car salesman this may prove difficult, but it is necessary. If you advertise that price if “firm” you are likely to lose potential buyers and of those who do respond, many will try to negotiate anyway. Everyone wants to feel like they made a good deal and to some negotiating is how they meet the need. And some see it as a sign of respect; a give-and-take that demonstrates an appreciation for the other person s situation. The asking price is typically about 10 percent above the actual value of the vehicle.
The actual value of a vehicle can be easy or difficult to determine, based on the age, make and model of the vehicle. The older and rarer the vehicle is the harder it will be to determine the actual value because it is based on the current market value, its condition, how unique it is and the seller s emotional attachment. Newer vehicles are therefore relatively easy to evaluate because they are not rare, the condition is usually a simple factor of appearance and mileage and the seller is not likely to be emotionally attached. However older cars are a different story. Value guides such as NADA or Kelly Blue Book are good places to start – but do not stop there.
The next step is to look at the current market value. Search the Internet for the specific year, make and model of your vehicle and see what others are asking. Call other sellers to compare the condition of their vehicles to yours and determine how long their vehicles have been on the market at their asking prices. Look for used car dealers who are selling similar vehicles because they will have already researched the best asking price, watch the automobile auction shows on television, and study the classified ads in your local newspaper.
The next consideration is the uniqueness which is more subjective and while we have an How To Appraise a Vehicle reference guide you may require the help of a professional appraiser. Just like fine wines, there are specific years, makes and models of vehicles that have a unique appeal and/or are particularly rare. Limited edition vehicles such as the Shelby Cobra and one-of-a-kind vehicles such as the Tucker or a past president s limousine will require a knowledge of their sales history and current public interest.
And finally there is the emotional value. If you really do not want to sell the vehicle but must, or just finished an expensive restoration, you are likely to want more that it is worth. However if you are selling one of Elvis Presley s Cadillacs prior to a significant anniversary when there is a lot of publicity you may be able to ask more than it is worth. Here again a professional appraiser may be of some help.
