The 6th Car:
Exhibit Car #4

Originally 36-seat Pullman parlor car HALIFAX (built to Pullman plan 2916B and assigned to the New Haven), the Cara Nome got its name from Rexall's line of cosmetics.

After the Rexall tour the car was sold to the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1942, becoming their car #1203.
