Welcome to the online home of the world-famous Caritas, a luxury private railcar owned by the Friends of the 261. With its award-winning interior, thoughtful appointments, and modern amenities, Caritas is the perfect time machine for your next private railcar trip or charter!


This beautiful railcar started life as a 14-4 sleeper on the Frisco, and today it’s one of the premiere railcars in operation in the nation.

Fully renovated in 1985, Caritas has been a favorite of the private railcar world for almost four decades.
