By | September 15, 2022 Funds from Save America's Treasures program will help restore 1926 car ‘Maitland' CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum has received a $200,000 grant from a National Park Service program toward restoration of the museum's 1925 Pullman sleeping car, the Maitland. The Southern Railway donated the 12-section, one-drawing-room car to the museum in 1965 upon its retirement from a career in both World War II and peacetime service. 'TVRM is pleased to be recognized through this grant for our efforts to preserve this important piece of railroad history,' museum President Tim Andrews said in a press release.
