Stay in a Boxcar Hotel

There are a number of hotels or inns where you can stay in a refurbished caboose. But I'm only aware of a couple places where you can stay in a box car.

One place is the Northern Rail Traincar Inn at Two Harbors, Minnesota.

Located 35 minutes from Duluth, guests can make a reservation in one of what looks like eight boxcars at the Inn.

The former SP and WP boxcars have GSSX reporting marks. That stands for Gopher State Scrap and Metal, now known as Alter Metal Recycling.

The company has a railroad division that specializes in railcar repair, demolition, sales and leasing.

Another place is the Train Station Inn in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.

Built in 1928 by Canadian National Railways and used by that railway 1997, today the station features accommodations in cabooses and two boxcars.

Anyone know of other hotels or inns that feature non-caboose rolling stock?
