Very nice paint job! The 2972 appears to be in good condition. I wonder if the interior has been refurbished as nicely as the exterior? If I was in the area, I would have to visit the museum to see that car, but I would also have to see this car, http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPi ... id=4708279, the former Missouri Pacific 892 "planetarium" dome coach, which appears to be in superb condition.trainspot wrote:Heart of Dixie museum's 2972:

The Indiana Rail Road Company had three former LIRR P72 coaches. Unfortunately their new car numbers (1, 2 and 3) give no hint of their former LIRR car numbers.
Car # 1: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mark_vogel/7841688414
Notice how one end of the car has been modified to serve as a track inspection/observation car.
Car # 2: http://inrd.indianarailroads.org/inrdpass2.jpg
Notice how the lettering is significantly smaller than the lettering on car # 1.
Cars 1 and 2 have been sold; new owner unknown. Car 3 was scrapped.
