Yes, you could. That's been around since the early days of train travel. It was somewhat like owning a private jet today - very expensive, but very luxurious, private and pampering.I was listening to a WSJ podcast interview with the CEO tasked with the Amtrak turnaround, and one thing that was mentioned is that hobbyists would no longer be allowed to hitch their antique train cars to Amtrak trains.
To which my immediate thought was "wait, all this time you could buy your own railroad car, and hitch it to an Amtrak train to actually ride in it?"
No, I can never justify paying for a fancy ticket on a domestic flight (in general... maybe coast to coast), though I'm happy for free upgrades.My bias is confirmed.

Overseas travel is another matter entirely. I would gladly commit a minor criminal act to secure business class when flying more than 5
