But as historic preservation caught on in the 1950s, private individuals began buying up older cars with an eye towards saving them for future generations. Many were determined to get them back up and running, a daunting task that typically required removing, rebuilding, and replacing virtually every piece - heavy, dirty work that made having a well-equipped shop a must. Over time, what started out as a labor of love evolved into a business, as the shops began taking on restoration and rebuilding projects for others. To help pay the bills and keep their classic cars rolling, many began running charter services, providing cars for fantrips, business excursions and more. Railcar Restoration and Charter is one such business.
