History

The St. Augustine, WATX 500, will add the final touch to your high-density seating requirements for rail travel plans, reminiscent of the golden years of passenger train service. Restored to its original 56-seat coach configuration, the seating area has been refurbished in a beautiful manner while keeping dependability, quality, and comfort as the key objectives. Adjustable seat backs and long-distance leg rests offer a comfortable ride. The beautifully decorated and spacious rest rooms with retention toilets at each end of the car add convenience. The climate control heating and air conditioning system maintains a nice environment inside the car. Traveling on the St. Augustine will be a unique experience for your passengers.

The St. Augustine is AMTRAK approved with head-end power, 27-point connection, main reservoir airline, and superliner compatibility. The car is fully self-contained with a generator.
