Full Specifications


The Anacapa was built by the Pullman Company in 1929 for John Palmer Gavit, the editor of the
Washington Evening Post. The interior design is a blend of Indian and 20s Parisian styles. For example,
the colors were selected both from a cave painting found near Anacapa island and more muted
European hues. The car was eventually bought by the Chicago and Northwestern railroad after Gavit
died, where it served their Chief Executives as Car No. 401. It was purchased from Chicago and
Northwestern by Harris J. Allen, who spent a year restoring it to its original condition. During its service
life, the car hosted noted persons such as Dwight D. Eisenhower, Charles M. Schwab, and Adlai
Stephenson. The car has some flood damage and needs restoration
