…and the Station to Station – a public art project made possible by Levis, train goes on!
And on board are still these two crazy guys – Jakob and Tobias. Who were totally
stoked to see punk legend Patti Smith.
The railcars are from the 1940’s and 1950’s and are owned by a group of individuals.
The cars were grouped by Altiplano Railtours and provided to S2S as a tailored package
with cars selected for their best use in the train. Two of the cars come from the Santa Fe
Railway, 3 from the Milwaukee Road, two from the US Army and one from the Norfolk and
Western. These are cars that were used on the streamliners of the 1950’s, many went to
Amtrak but were sold off in the 1980’s. Through a labor of love many of the railcars have
been meticulously restored and made available for charters. Both the dining car and front
car were designed by Jorge par do. There are 9 cars on the Station to Station train.
