The accommodation layout, obsolete plumbing and equipment on old sleeping cars normally makes them unsuitable for conversion. America’s Trains sleeping cars are rebuilt ex passenger coaches with modernized systems and much larger rooms. Typical sleeping cars only include sleeping accommodations. Some other types of cars may also have some bedrooms.
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. America’s Trains’ sleeping cars have five or six deluxe bedrooms each with full private bathrooms. Some may also have a small private lounge.
Cars are completely rebuilt; designed for optimum comfort.
