    That is a blank slate. It could be turned into something beautiful. Currently it is lacking. It looks functional but that is it.

  • Liz says:

    Functional is beautiful. It’s only “lacking” if the people who live there think so. It has a good fire, friendly dogs, a safe place to sleep…It looks lovely to me.

  • Matt says:

    I am in love with that. It could be something great. I wish there was more pictures of it. I am looking for a tiny house in that area right now. Magic could happen with that piece of history

    Admittedly, I would spruce it up more but I think it is pretty cool. Wonder what would have happened to the train car if someone hadn’t turned it into a home?

  • Llia says:

    Beautiful, simple, I’d love to live in one of these.

  • Lisa says:

    I love the use of metal in this home, an awesome fit with the original train car. Beautiful mural in the bedroom.

  • Sara says:

    Using an old train car for a home is a wonderful idea! Yes, I would decorate it differently, but to each his/her own.

  • Garron says:

    I agree-
    It is a retired railcar for a retired railroad man in New Mexico-
    what do you want?

    Frills and lace?

    It seems balanced and appropriate to me.

    There’s a nice one on Confederate St in Fort Mill, SC. I would love to see inside that one.

    What a brilliant idea! I have to agree with some here, though, a lot of potential lost with the decor and choices made with wiring, etc. To each his or her own. It did inspire me to think or what I could do! I think you for that!
