Built by the Budd Company in 1949 as a 22 roomette sleeper for the New York Central. Rebuilt by the Budd Company in 1962 as a roomette/slumber coach. After the New York Central/Pennsylvania Railroad merger the car became the property of Penn Central, who eventually sold it to Amtrak. In the late 1980's-early 1990's the car was sold into private ownership and sold to Philip Morris Tobacco as a crew car on the proposed Marlboro Train. Interior renovations began but the project died an early death and all work on the cars were stopped. There are no trucks with the car and it does have updated interior paint, HEP, 27 pin, emergency windows, electric heat, A/C.
