Bonnie Brook arrives in Galveston

The 1949 private train car Bonnie Brook has arrived at the Museum!

The Bonnie Brook is a round end, light weight car built in 1949 for the New York Central. It went into private service in 1964, and was used by Jackie Gleason to travel between New York and Miami for shooting The Jackie Gleason Show.

The car is currently being prepared for exhibition, and will soon be available for tours. Model CJ Reese and photographer Katie Haukebo were at the museum in June to capture these stunning shots of the restored Bonnie Brook.
