Traditional Business Car, Diner, Lounge, Sleeper: Day 16, Night 8
FEATURES: The Yerba Buena is a classic observation lounge and sleeping car dating from the “Golden Age of Railroading.” Built as a sleeper in 1942 by the Pullman Company, the car was converted to a business car in 1965, including the addition of a tail-end viewing platform. Purchased by Rail Ventures in 1981 for deluxe charter service, the Yerba Buena was completely rebuilt in 1991.
Restored in teak and mahogany, with luxurious furnishings and classic railroad fixtures, the Yerba Buena offers a five-star level of service and comfort brought back from a bygone era. The open viewing platform and the beautifully restored observation lounge provide luxurious travel by day. Two large drawing rooms and two compartments, elegantly restored, share a shower and dressing room, providing comfort and privacy by night. A private onboard chef prepares only the finest regional cuisine, served with fine wines in a private dining parlor.
