Co-owner of Pullman sleeper " Colorado Pine", ex L&N "Plantation Pine". The Pine series sleepers are configured with 6 Sections, 4 Double Bedrooms and 6 Roomettes and were built in 1953 to plan 4183. Currently under going a full restoration with Amtrak compatibility as the ultimate goal. The car is based in Denver, Colorado.
Should you have any photographs of this car in L&N revenue service, could you please send me a copy?
So you think that you might wish to purchase a classic railroad car and become the 1990's version of Lucius Beebe and Charles Clegg or James West and Artimus Gordon? You might want to have a look at the on going story of the restoration of the "Colorado Pine". It's sometimes a whole lot of work. But, I thought that people who restore old Buicks were abnormal.
If you're wondering how I pay for this restoration activity, I program computers to provide the income for this work. I'm always looking for work opportunities. So, if you have an opportunity, I have a resume.
