Charter a Train Car

Travel back in time—sort of—on a tricked-out vintage train coach that even Ozzy Osbourne would deem crazy. For $4,000 or more, you and about 50 pals can hop aboard one of L.A. Rail’s five rentable cars, which have been restored to their ’40s and ’50s glory. A crew of porters and bartenders on, say, the Overland Trail ensures that day trips to San Diego or Santa Barbara are comfortable. Make a weekend of it with the Pacific Sands Pullman sleeper, available for overnight trips to Portland.—LEILAH BERNSTEIN
