American Orient Express
Piano Lounge

Built in 1954 by ACF as UP 14-section sleeper ALPINE MEADOW. Rebuilt as 44-seat coach UP 5548 in 1965, to Amtrak 4588 in 1973. Rebuilt as club car BAY POINT by AEE.

AEE President William Spann was also Managing Partner of the Bay Point Yacht & Country Club in Panama City, FL.

Bay Point Furnishings provided the interior of the car. Renamed SEATTLE for AOE service in 1996. Had a Baldwin grand piano in the middle of the car (must have been a treat to keep it tuned).

In regular GLR service to the end.
