Chessie Steam Special  

Generally the car was only on the train during ferry runs between origin cities. One such move was the one-way ferry trip across Virginia Sept 11 (with Chessie president Watkins aboard) & 12, 1977.

Pictured at Hilliard, OH in 1981. The car was apparently scrapped at this location some years later.
