If you like history and have the time, it is well worth booking a tour of Jay Gould's restored, live-in railroad car called Atalanta. You can not go in the car on your own, you have to get your ticket and tour time at the Excelsior Hotel across the street. The guides are very good, they can tell you about the restoration and the history of how Gould and Jefferson are connected. But even if you don't care about the history, you should go to see the luxury of how one of the wealthiest families in the US of the late 1800s traveled. When you first enter the car there is a living room, then you see several bedrooms, the kitchen and dinning room. There is even a place for the cook to sleep. The wood finish is beautiful and interior furnishings shows off how comfortable the Gould family could travel.
