Crew Sleeper

Built by PS in 1953 as L&N 3468 WHISPERING PINE, a 6-6-4 sleeper. To AT 612.

According to Doug Riddell, this car received a very spartan AT paint job without stripes and was used in rider service (a cross between a dorm and a caboose) to ferry employees between Sanford and Lorton.

After AT the car went to Ringling Bros. and became #242 for their 'Monte Carlo' (Gold Unit) Train of 1979.

If you have a photograph of the car in AT paint you'd like to contribute -- please email.
