Built by the Pullman Company as one of the first all-steel business cars, Federal began service on February 3, 1911. Presidents Taft and Wilson used the car for their travels from 1911 to 1916. Federal was sold to the DL&WW Railroad in 1933. Acquired in 1992, Federal underwent extensive restoration and returned to operating service in October, 2002. Enjoy a meal in the formal dining room, which includes its original 1911 mahogany table and chairs. The two master bedrooms feature their original double brass beds, and two compartments retain their original medicine cabinets, closets, sinks, luggage racks, ceilings, and wall-mounted light fixtures. Other features include a large shower and changing room, crew quarters, full-service kitchen, stereo CD/TV/VCR/DVD, original Pullman carpeting, observation lounge, and open rear platform with original brass railings.
