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.
Under new ownership, and recently refreshed mechanically, the next chapter of Caritas is upon us and you could help write it.
