Reconfiguring an existing ADA Coach Car into an ADA Dining Car
CVSR is renovating the historic Silver Salon car to better accommodate passengers with mobility limitations. Our existing ADA cars are limited to coach seating and do not provide accessibility to our higher-end dining and beverage events. These renovations will also significantly improve the aesthetic appeal of the interior, compared to the existing ADA cars.
Interior renovation will include the installation of a new wheelchair-accessible bathroom, wall paneling, new windows and window dressings, carpeting, wheelchair tie-downs, new seating, tables, renovations to bar/service area, improved lighting and motorized roll-up ADA doors. Mechanical upgrades and the installation of a wheelchair lift are also part of the project. It’s expected that the car will be finished by the fall of 2022.
