Lucky Baldwin Railcar

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, kitchen and music room.
