Sleeper

 

 

FRRX 1112 "Edenwold"
Set up for use as sleeping quarters for WPRM volunteers.
Built in 1954 by the Pullman Standard Company as a 4-8-4 Sleeper.
Ex Canadian National, ex VIA.
Donated By Jack Hathaway.  (Not open for public display.)

The 4-8-4 sleeper has four bedrooms (A-D) that sleep two people each, eight roomettes (5-12) that accommodate one person each and four open sections (1-4.)  In the open section of the car we usually only have the lower berths opened for use.  

 

The Western Pacific Railroad Museum at Portola provides sleeping/lodging facilities for working crews during the year.  Whether you work in facilities, the mechanical department, the operating department or any other area, the museum has lodging, cooking, relaxation and restroom/shower facilities for your short term use while working at the museum.

Reservations are required and can be made with our on-line reservation tool:

or by contacting the Edenwold Coordinator by email at sleeper_reservations@wplives.org .  Please include your name, membership number, phone number, arrival date, departure date and room preferences in your email if you do not use the on-line tool.

The crew lounge, relaxation, kitchen, restroom and shower facilities are open to all members at any time while working at the museum.
