Which collection were these cars a part of? They appear to have already been pretty heavily vandalized.

From here: Morristown & Erie Railway Cars burn in East Hanover
Two Morristown & Erie Railway passenger cars burned in East Hanover, NJ. Cars are:

1. Ex-Amtrak sleeper, the "A. Philip Randolph", named to honor the African-American who was a civil rights leader and the organizer of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, the first predominantly African-American labor union, which was a labor union for Pullman Porters.

2. Former PRR observation lounge "Martha Washington", built circa 1951, which was part of the consist on Pennsy's "Senator" passenger train.

Details and photos at link. Article erroneously states that cars are owned by Whippany Railway Museum, the location they were moved to after the fire.
