Built by the Pullman Company in 1947 as a 68 seat coach and was used in service on virtually all of the Rock Island passenger trains. Rebuilt by the railroad in the early 1960's, the car had all of its original Pullman stainless fluting removed and stainless steel side sheets installed on the exterior of the car. It was one of the few cars that remained in service right up to the shut down of the Rock Island in the early 1980's. After the car was retired from service it was purchased by several private owners until the current owner purchased the car in 1988 and converted it into a sleeper lounge configuration. The car has two vestibules, when you walk into the vestibule on the lounge end of the car you enter a spacious 14 seat oak lounge furnished with authentic railroad chairs. From the lounge you pass through the hall that takes you past two master rooms with upper and lower berths and a connecting shower/toilet. At the end of the hall is a spacious dining room with china buffet and ample storage space and a traditional dining room table seating up to 8 guests. From the dining room a service hall leads past a full kitchen, storage room and general toilet. Jane Marie is in full operating condition and is Amtrak certified.
