With rooms spread across 46 cabooses1, the motel offers a variety of accommodation, including a honeymoon suite with jacuzzi!
Somewhat smaller, but surrounded by beautiful scenery of northern California’s Cascade mountain range, the Railroad Park Resort in Dunsmuir is located at the point where additional locomotives were added to trains to help them over the steep mountain passes.
Google’s Street View car drove around the resort, giving us a close-up look at the cabooses used as hotel rooms. Casey Jones is a legendary figure in American railroad history – he is credited with saving countless lives by dramatically reducing his train’s speed prior to an accident in which he died. Jones lived in Jackson, Tennessee, where there is a motel with a couple of cabooses and one train carriage, opposite the Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum. While on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona, a Southern Pacific caboose is also part of a bed and breakfast called the Double-K Ranch. Train hotels are not just found in the US; in the Netherlands, the unusually-named Controversy Tram Inn offers accommodation in a number of trams and train carriages.
Finally, right next to the main train station in Lund, Sweden, seven train carriages spent a couple of decades as a youth hostel before closing earlier this year.


Ian Brown lives in Ottawa, Canada, and spends his spare time perusing maps to find new routes to ride on his orange bicycle.
Near Mossleigh (Alberta, Canada) there is a railway-themed Aspen Crossing campsite – with great Pullman dining car operational as restaurant, and a caboose used as a cabin for rent!
Welcome to Google SightseeingGoogle Sightseeing takes you on a tour of the world as seen from satellite, using the free Google Earth program, or Google Maps in your web browser. Although the walls in question are made of stone, the title of this post isn’t missing an ‘e’. Longtime reader: There has not been a new Google Sightseeing post since this one on May 22, 2015. To look at things from the opposite perspective, there are a surprising number of train carriages around the world which serve as hotels. The Red Caboose is popular with people visiting the nearby Strasburg Railroad which runs trips on trains pulled by a restored steam locomotive, and the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. He was memorialised in a song called The Ballad of Casey Jones which has been recorded by many artists including Pete Seeger and Johnny Cash.


There are quite a few of these converted train BnBs across N America and a few in the UK too. Perhaps the largest collection of these is the Red Caboose Motel in Strasburg,  Pennsylvania. You can even get special kits to make your own, which is cheaper than buying an old caboose apparently.
