Caritas is an art-deco, open-platform car built in 1948 by Pullman-Standard as a 14-roomette, 4-bedroom sleeper car named the Pierre LaClede for The Texas Special. Canadian National purchased it in 1965 and called it the Churchill Falls until retiring it in 1982. High Iron Travel purchased and rebuilt it so that, in November 1984, the car could begin its new life as the premiere "rare mileage car." It has traveled everywhere from the Northwest Territories to Guatemala. Now christened "Caritas," this PV allows guests to lounge in ten comfortable chairs, dine in luxury built for eight, and sleep in a master, double, or one of four conventional bedrooms.
