Inspired by the unsurpassed luxury of The Gilded Age of train travel!


Built in 1956 by the Pullman Company for the Union Pacific Railroad as the eleven double bedroom sleeping car Placid Bay. When Union Pacific began to exit the passenger business, the car was sold to Amtrak and renumbered to #2263. During Amtrak ownership the Placid Bay operated in President Jimmy Carters inauguration train the "Peanut Special".  After Amtrak retired the car, it went to several private owners before being purchased by American European Express. AEE converted Placid Bay to a luxury sleeper for use on their cruise train and renamed the car Berlin.  After the demise of AEE the car was sold to American Orient Express, Grandluxe Rail Journeys and then sold into private ownership. 

Berlin has come along way from the standard vanilla sleeper produced by the Pullman Company. Paneled with Honduran mahogany, up to date mechanical/electrical systems and completely self contained, the car has three master rooms with full size bed (sleeps 2), one double bed room (sleeps 2), one master room (sleeps 2 in upper & lower berth) and one presidential suite (sleeps 4) . Berlin is Amtrak certified and ready for service and some of the car details include: Excellent body and roof, daytime capacity of 30, sleeping capacity of 12 (plus two crew), each bedroom is equipped with its own shower and restroom, each room equipped with tables for in room dining, kitchenette (refrigerator/freezer, custom cabinetry, sink, microwave), new carpet & upholstery in 2012, full HEP, 27 pin communication line, OSSH trucks, APEE bearings, 26-C valves, disc brakes, thick serviceable wheels (new in 2012), decelostats, 40KW Cummins diesel generator, FRA glazing (new in 2012), emergency windows, 500 gal water tank, 50 gal commercial hot water tank, freeze protection, Microphor toilets (with holding tanks), marker lights, rubber diaphragms, EOT brackets, current PC-1 & PC-7 (wheel/axle ultrasound), fully stocked with linens, NEW Lands End 100% wool blankets, new exterior paint below window band and under car.
