Patron Tequila Express Business Car in Saint Paul, Minnesota, for the 2008 Republican National Convention.

While avoiding the route through downtown St. Paul during the Republican National Convention, I drove past the Amtrak station and saw a few private cars in addition to those that are usually housed there.

The most notable private car was the Patrón Tequila Express business car. Built in 1926 it was used by the Gulf Mobile, and Ohio Railroad (GMO).
