I stumbled into a story about staying in old, converted railway cars while on vacation in the U.K. This company in Cornwall has three different conversions for rent, including this old luggage van. To heck with the canned ham trailers. I want a rail car!

    wow that’s so cool – it reminds me of some of those old Enid Blyton books like the famous five etc…

    I live in the UK and LOVE this site. My only frustration is you show such lovely stuff but we can never get it here, so I just look and dream ;o)

    Thank you for this, we might give it a go and report back!

    There is a place in the US that has train cars set up as separate “hotel” accomodations – it’s a south eastern state, don’t remember which one…….

    There is a wonderful little “motel” called Railroad Park in northern California. All the “rooms” are converted boxcars or cabooses (bed/sitting room and bath), and each sits on its own section of track. The restaurant is a converted dining car and there is a Shay locomotive on display. My husband and I stayed there on our honeymoon 20 years ago. It was totally and completely charming!
