Rebuilding Rail Passenger Cars

Over the years, I have followed some folks and groups who have rebuilt their passenger rail cars to Amtrak operating standards.

Here are a few cars that I follow.
ERIX RailCar
Colorado Pine
Mt. Vernon
Dover Harbor

One car that I really like is the NKP 1. It was built for the Nickel Plate Railroad in 1929 and used by the Van Sweringen brothers.

I'm working on a post to explain what it takes(besides money) to get a private car up to Amtrak standards.
