Ferdinand MagellanWe'd like to thank the National Railroad Historical Society (NRHS) for a recent grant award to assist with painting and upholstery work in the presidential railcar Ferdinand Magellan.

An interior restoration has long been overdue for this valuable railcar. This fall, visitors will begin to see historically appropriate upgrades to this car’s interior. We would also like to thank Board Member and Volunteer David MacFadden for installing plexiglass panels over the openings of the Magellan’s Staterooms. These panels allow visitors to view the interior of the rooms without damage to their historical furnishings.
