"Titanic was called ‘The Ship Of Dreams’ and it was… it really was…"

Benjamin Guggenheim was a passenger on the Titanic.  When he realized that the ship was sinking, he returned to his cabin and dressed in evening suit and tails.  He was heard to remark, “Now we are dressed in our best, and prepared to go down like gentlemen.”
Guggenheim and his valet were last seen seated in deck chairs in the foyer of the Grand Staircase sipping brandy and smoking cigars.

Y Ruff It?

This teensy camper trailer belonged to William Lear of the Lear Jet company.  It was used to house his irish wolfhound.  The trailer was apparently towable, as it has a plate and lights, and it was also designed to be small enough to transport in the cargo hold of his private jet.  There used to be an air conditioner on top for the doggie’s comfort, and the propane tank flips open to reveal dog food storage. Y ruff it?

The Virginia & Truckee railroad had a McKeen motorcar to offer passenger service without the expense of running a full train locomotive.  The portholes were designed in imitation of ocean liners, which were the ultimate in luxury travel in those times.  Old car #22 later ended up as the Super Chief diner in Carson City, Nevada, later to become Al’s Plumbing Supply before being donated to the Nevada State Rail Museum where it has been restored.  Check out that rear lounge!

Go for a ride May 10th in Carson City Nevada!
