Lucky Baldwin Railcar

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

Lucky Baldwin was one of the great characters of Southern California history during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a pioneer and real estate tycoon who owned the land that would become Arcadia, Monrovia, and Baldwin Hills. With his vast wealth, one of the luxuries he indulged in was a grand railcar for traveling. Huell gets a special tour of this lavish car that housed a full staff, sleeping quarters, dining area, music room, and kitchen.
