The accommodation layout, plumbing and equipment on old sleeper cars makes them unsuitable for conversion. America’s Trains sleeping cars are rebuilt ex passenger coaches with modernized systems and much larger rooms.
Previous sleeping accommodations on available cars in the USA were small with up to 12 or more rooms or compartments in a single car, most sharing bathroom facilities. Most of America’s Trains’ sleeping cars have six deluxe bedrooms each with full private bathrooms. Some Cars may have five bedrooms with full bathrooms, and a private lounge. Bedrooms are also located on other types of cars.
Cars are completely rebuilt; designed for optimum comfort.
