Welcome aboard the DOVER HARBOR.  Our restored classic American sleeper-lounge-buffet railroad car is the only heavy weight Pullman revenue passenger car still operating in unrestricted train service on the main lines of America. DOVER HARBOR is beautifully restored to its authentic 1930s appearance and meets all current mechanical and safety requirements.    

Our on-board service stands apart from the rest! Aboard DOVER HARBOR you will receive personal attention and first-class service in the best traditions of the legendary Pullman Company. You can relax and let our experienced, knowledgeable, Travel and sleep in safety and comfort. uniformed staff attend to you and your guests' every need throughout your journey.  You will enjoy freshly prepared, elegant meals from a menu tailored to your tastes.  Sit back and take in the scenery, play cards, read, chat, or even sleep in the relaxed comfort of our historic Pullman  as you glide down silvery tracks to your destination. 

Overnight guests enjoy the thrill of sleeping in one of our private double-bedrooms. Fall asleep safe and sound snuggled in your berth to a classic part of Americana - the sound and motion of the train ride.  Awake refreshed, peering out your window to see "where you are."  And we'll even shine your shoes while you sleep, just as the original Pullman porters did for their traveling guests!

Whether you are traveling alone, with family and friends, entertaining a group, or hosting a corporate outing,  a private rail car adventure aboard DOVER HARBOR is sure to leave a lasting fantastic impression on you and your guests.  Check out our video below, then call our Charter Agent today and get started planning your DOVER HARBOR memories. Your trip will be "Travel in Serious Style", as an article in W Magazine once noted.
