EC can sleep 4 comfortably. There is a queen size bed as well as a queen size pull out couch. The kitchenette is equipped with a keurig coffee maker, toaster, electric kettle, microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom has several extras in case you forget something. The shower, which has exposed copper plumbing, is sure to impress. Outside there is a small patio with adirondack chairs that over looks the horse pasture and our beautiful Panhandle sunsets.

The space
The El Capitan was a streamlined passenger train operated by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway from Chicago, Ill to Los Angeles, CA from 1938 to 1971. El Capitan leaves behind a legacy of being a luxurious, efficient passenger lines to cross the western plains. As I renovated this refrigerated boxcar, I wanted to keep that legacy alive and create a space that combines the spirit of the west with modern day conveniences.

Where you’ll be

Canyon, Texas, United States

EC is approximately 13 miles from the Palo Duro Canyon State Park. It is just 2 miles from I27 that runs from Amarillo to Lubbock, TX and is 4.5 miles from West Texas A&M University. EC sits on eastern edge of 70 acres were you will likely see several horses and miniature donkeys out grazing. Although, most of the Texas Panhandle is not known for its scenery, if you look west in the evenings you are sure to catch a beautiful sunset that stretches on and on.
