Where are they now?
Here are a few old show cars now housed at the Florida Railroad Museum in Parrish, FL ( about 25 miles north of Sarasota ) http://www.frrm.org/index1.php
ATLANTIC COAST LINE COACH 1116 built by Bethlehem Steel Co. in 1938 for Atlantic Coast Line. Sold to Royal American Shows in 1960's. Purchased from Royal American Shows in 1989. Stored for future restoration.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
