Temporarily Yours, Rolling or Stationary ...
The DOVER HARBOR is an unparalleled example of first-class railroad
passenger service from 70+ years ago. It is impossible to find anything in
regular railroad service today that can equal the DOVER HARBOR's heavyweight
riding comfort, elegant appointments, and full climate control. Small wonder
that Forbes Magazine, in an article published October 2, 1989, referred
to the DOVER HARBOR as a "Jewel of the Rails."
To share this grand living example of the grandest years of railroad
passenger travel, the Washington, D.C. Chapter NRHS offers the DOVER HARBOR for
lease, either rolling on America's rails or at some appropriate parking site.
Thus an exclusive excursion or occasion can be yours. For an overnight
journey there is capacity for up to 10 guests. For a day time trip or stationary event
there is capacity for 24 guests. If you need capacity for more guests, our Charter
Agent will be happy to work with you in arrangements for additional private
cars or space on Amtrak.
The car's buffet provides a meal preparation area for serving meals and
beverages on board. You may arrange with our Charter
Agent for the car's staff to provide and serve meals or you may arrange for
a caterer to do so.
Up to five of the six double bedrooms are available for you and your guests. The
sixth is reserved for the crew.
At least two fully qualified and experienced
crew members are always present to provide outstanding
service, assure proper operation of the car's
systems and to deal with railroad personnel. We can also provide a chef.
The DOVER HARBOR is an Amtrak Class A (unrestricted) car. It draws
electric power from the locomotive to provide lighting, heating, and
air conditioning. The car has a tank for water. It can run on any Amtrak
train that does not exceed 110 miles per hour. Its diesel powered generator
with fuel tanks also allows it to operate in non Amtrak service and
to power a second HEP equipped car.
