RIDE THE PRIVATE RAIL CAR – BERLIN
ON THE
“$100 Bucks” PITTSBURGH RAILFAN SPECIAL - May 26-27, 2017
OR
PITTSBURGH to HARRISBURG to PITTSBURGH ROUND TRIP - May 28, 2017

Looking for something to do over the Memorial Day weekend? A hundred bucks can get you a day on a private railroad car!
Occasionally, we offer discounted rides when we position the BERLIN to/from other cities in preparation for a charter or scheduled trip departing from outside of Pittsburgh. Some positioning moves are no-frills; just a great ride and adventure on a private rail car. Join us for a trip designed especially for railfans as we travel from Huntington WV to New York City to Pittsburgh PA! Ride aboard the private, Pullman, 1956 built former American Orient Express executive sleeper BERLIN through the scenic New River Gorge in “Wild and Wonderful West (By Gawd) Virginia", and on the Northeast Corridor Cardinal and Pennsylanian routes. This is a trip only for real railfans – to keep this trip to the lowest price possible there will be no crew aboard other than the car owner. We will stock standard self-serve railfan snacks aboard the Berlin, but meals will be on a YO-YO basis (You’re On Your Own), or in the Amtrak cafe. All room suites will be held open as "Lounge" space, and the car will be running backwards on May 26 between Huntington WV and NYC, as well as May 27 on the Pennsylanian from Harrisburg to Pittsburgh (over the Rockville Bridge and Horseshoe Curve) - so that the vestibule becomes our rear platform!
If you want to learn anything about private car operation, this is a special behind the scenes, learn how to run a railcar trip! If you desire, you can even take a turn as the car Conductor or Porter during the trip.

NOTE: The BERLIN will also be hosting a separate ONE DAY round trip from Pittsburgh to Harrisburg and return on Sunday May 28, 2017 . This day trip will include the service of an on board steward providing light breakfast snacks, a specially prepared box lunches and dinner on board. Snacks, water, coffee and a choice of beer and wine will be available. The Fare for this one day trip is $200 per person.
