Step back in time…Visit the 101 Car in Big Stone Gap Virginia, now located at the Southwest Virginia Museum State Park. The car is an excellent example of typical passenger car construction for the late 19th century. As-built, it contained an observation room, two staterooms, a dining area, facilities for the porter, and a kitchen area. Most of the original fixtures are intact, including the lavatories, lighting fixtures, and even the speedometer in the rear observation area. It also serves as a scenic overlook with a commanding view of Bullitt Park, downtown, and the mountain ranges.
