    While maybe not as cool as a train car, it's surprisngly common for transit buses to be converted into various degrees of a party bus.

    They're incredibly affordable once they go to public auction (usually after 12 years - grants and all) where a 30-40 bus can sell for a few hundred bucks.

    Yeah, but as a kid oriented party bus? With balloons rather than barf?

    Admittedly, the transportation cost of moving (and keeping on the move) a bus is much more economical than transporting these classic rail cars to sit somewhere.

    That said, I really do want the classic 50s style diner car for sale on that site:

    Oh, no. Someone finally bought it. I've been coveting that car for ages. Well, I hope that they at least take good care of it, preserve it, and perhaps reopen it as a diner again. I know that I would certainly patronize the business.

    Looks like they got the partner, also. Another beauty:

    I guess I'll have to go on to my next rail car crush. It actually still rolls. But costs a lot more money. Still, quite reasonable. And a real great renovated piece.

    There's a campground out here where you can stay in a converted caboose as a cabin, that seems pretty neat but EWW NATURE YUCK.

    Back in my ~drifting days~ (I say this with a je ne sais quoi that you just can't place but find enticingly mysterious--feel free to probe me about this lifestyle), I used to inhabit a very similar looking caboose that we and the other tenants called the party caboose! I had to pay for it dearly (a close brush with tetanus), but I remember a good night or two frolicking in the caboose, letting our inhibitions go and romp stomping with my dear boys.

    smooch smooch,
