US Car Number 1, the Ferdinand Magellan, sits in the Gold Coast Railway Museum in Miami. It's 120 tons of bulletproof, armored railcar: a train carriage designed to move the President of the United States around the country in safety and style. (At least, it was, until other transport came along to do a better job.)
