RPCX 8322 Car Arrives


3/6/15 - RPCX 8322 now the "Spirit of Arkansas" car #109 has been online operating since June 2014.  The National Railway Historical Society held their national convention in NW Arkansas and was the first group to enjoy this new addition to the A&M.

The interior restoration was primarly done inhouse.  This year look for the exterior numbering and A&M color scheme to be added.   The "Spirit of Arkansas" provides additional seating and is great for entertaining.  

A&M recently received a RPCX 8322 car from the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum in Dennison, Ohio. Built as part of the "Pride of Texas" series for the Southern Pacific's Sunset Limited in 1950 as a diner bar/lounge, the self-contained car features a 240–3 phase AC motor powered by a Stadco genset, electric baseboard heat and R134a  air conditioning systems.
