Church Street Station

$25.00

This photo was taken in Huntington West Virginia at the old passenger station on July 23, 2009.  It had been parked there for quite some time.  It is interesting that the Pullman car was named Church Street Station Railway Company from Orlando Florida.  From my research, the Pullman car originally was part of a two-train car display at the Church Street Station Casino in Orlando Florida.  The property was sold and to the new owner's surprise, the Pullman cars were part of the sale.  The new owners attempted to sell them but did not get any bids when they found out the cost of moving them would exceed 100,000.  One of the cars was donated to the Florida Railroad Museum while this car was purchased by a waste and recycling firm, Western Elite in Los Vagas NV.  It was moved there and eventually became part of the company's Christmas Express Train.   I only suspect it was in Huntington as part of that move.
