General Ticketing Information

Passengers had the option to purchase tickets in one of three historic 1949 railcars that have been meticulously restored. Each car has a different interior layout and capacity - it is recommended that you visit our railcars page to familiarize yourself with each car.

Some additional notes on railcar configurations with regards to ticketing:

  • Catalpa Falls - The Catalpa Falls seats 10 people in the lounge (excluding the table area) and 10 people in the bedrooms (two per room). Table areas were open to all passengers when not in use for meal service. One of the Catalpa’s bedrooms was reserved for Broadway Limited crew and were not available for passengers.

  • Colonial Crafts - The Colonial Crafts seats 16 people in the lounge (excluding the table area), 6 people in the bedrooms (two per room), and 3 people in the drawing room. Table areas were open to all passengers when not in use for meal service.

  • Frank Thomson - The Frank Thomson seats 6 people in the mid-car lounge area (excluding the tables), 10 in the observation lounge, and 2 people in the drawing room. The 10 lounge seats in the observation lounge were rotated throughout the trip by Broadway Limited staff. During the Horseshoe Curve portions of the eastbound and westbound trips, the occupants of the observation lounge were decided by lottery. Table areas were open to all passengers when not in use for meal service. The Frank Thomson’s other two bedrooms were reserved for Broadway Limited crew and were not available for passengers.
