Private Varnish magazines

Private Varnish is the magazine about privately owned railroad passenger cars. A yearly subscription always begins with the next issue, not the current. It includes three issues of Private Varnish plus one annual Private Car Charter Guide. Photographs and articles describe private cars and their travels, owners, acquisition, and maintenance. The mechanical articles in Private Varnish are the most complete current source of illustrated passenger car mechanical information widely available.
