The 3rd Car:
Exhibit Car #1
Ad-Vantages

Originally 36-seat Pullman parlor car Lanesville (built to Pullman plan 2916A and assigned to the NYNH&H), the car got its new name from Rexall's in-house magazine.

After the Rexall tour the car was sold to the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1942, becoming their car #1205.

The four exhibit cars -- Ad-Vantages, Research, Bisma-Rex and Cara Nome -- were outfitted with dozens of displays.

The entire Ad-Vantages car was outfitted as half of a drug store. One wall was covered with floor to ceiling mirrors, giving the illusion of an entire drug store. It even had a complete soda fountain!

All four cars were open to the public and featured the scores of products Rexall offered in its stores.

Boxes were likely empty. And nailed down!
