Built in 1888 by the Pullman Company for the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad as a wood business car. All we have are interior photos, the car has been stored for the last 20 years inside a building and very difficult to get exterior photos. Great care will have to be to secure the car for movement, currently it has several timbers driven into the ground to support the sides of the car.
