The 12th Car:
Private Observation Car

Originally built as a 10 compartment observation car in 1916, this car was modernized into a 4 compartment office observation car named NEWPORT.

The car got its name from Rexall's very successful line of vitamins.

For the Rexall Train it was rebuilt to Pullman Plan 2502B and renamed Puretest. It went back to its NEWPORT paint and name after the Rexall Train.
