Built in 1923 as a 10 section/observation lounge by Pullman and named Mt. Desert. Operated in general pool service until sold to the New York Central Railroad, after extensive rebuilding the car was outshopped as business car #20 with four staterooms (1948) in NYC Lot #2228, then to PC #3, old 1966 to Buzz Norton* and named Hiram, under lease to CSS&SB with Amtrak #800127. Sold in 1995 to Toledo, Peoria & Western, now stored at Gateway in Madison, Illinois (near St. Louis)
* Richard "Buzz" Norton is involved with the last private commuter car in the nation, I wonder if Hiram served that purpose at some point.
I hope business picks up and Gateway can get more of their stock out on the rails.
