The great days of luxury train travel may be over, but that’s no reason you can’t enjoy your own plush private train car as an airbnb.
Savvy entrepreneurs are turning World War Two era train cars into beautiful accommodations for the discerning traveler. The train cars no longer travel anywhere — that’s your job — but they make a great destination, where you can pamper yourself with great amenities like a cozy kitchen stocked with gourmet items and the latest high end made in cookware pots and pans.
Such a renovated train car offers comfortable beds and furniture, with all the retro ambience of a ride on the Super Chief without any of the grinding noise or sooty bumping. And, if you want to step outside for a breath of fresh air, you just go out on the attached deck.
The train car is fitted with large windows for maximum brightness, fold out writing desks, and, of course, your very own private bathroom — with a bathtub/shower combo where you can soak while waiting for the conductor to come by to punch your ticket. You can even get streaming TV shows and good wifi — for free.
So why not treat yourself to a unique airbnb experience next time you hit the road — go online to find yourself a retro train car for a good night’s rest and DIY fine breakfast. All aboard!
