Central Indiana Ry's Dutchess
The Flagler Car Today

In the 1950s Ike Duffey bought the Flagler car and renamed it Dutchess.

It was built by Jackson and Sharp in 1899 for Henry Flagler, the colorful President/builder of the Florida East Coast Railroad (FEC). Originally built as a wooden car, it had been steel sheathed and rebuilt with a steel underframe. Ike Duffey had the car air-conditioned at considerable expense to retain the carved and inlaid mahogany interior of the car.

On August 1, 2004, I had the privilege to photograph the interior of the Flagler Car as it is today at the Indiana Transportation Museum in Noblesville. The problem? There were NO lights.

All of these shots were taken without my seeing what I was shooting!!
