$73000 CN/VIA Sleeping Car “Excelsior”

Published date: February 7, 2014

Built in 1952 by the Pullman Company as a 8 duplex roomette, 4 double bedroom, 4 section sleeper for the Canadian National Railroad. Car operated system wide on CN especially on the "Super Continental" between Montreal & Vancouver. Sold by CN to VIA Rail in the 1970's and was retired by VIA in 1989 and was scheduled to be cut up for scrap. Saved from the cutting torch and sold into private ownership, VIA wanted to retain the original CN trucks so they replace them with a set of New York Central trucks with new APEE bearings (these wheels have seen very little to no wear and are valued at close to $40,000). The car was returned to excursion service and received a new CN paint job in 2000. This is a very complete and original car, one of the best "E" series cars we have seen in a long time. Some of the mechanical details include: 220v electric heat, original 110v DC electrical system, NYC ISSH trucks with thick wheels, cast shoes, good body, complete interior, E couplers, great interior.
