This website, hosted by Florida’s Gold Coast Railroad Museum, includes an online exhibition about the Ferdinand Magellan, the only Presidential Railcar built in the 20th century. It is now the only passenger railcar that has ever been designated a National Historic Landmark. Students will learn about an interesting, and relatively unknown, aspect of Presidential life before the existence of Air Force One.
