NOTE: The roof mounted air conditioning units have been removed from these cars. The absence of the A/C units have left a large opening in the roof of each car allowing the interior exposed to the weather. The units can be reinstalled back on the cars enabling the cars to be put back into service.

Built in 1990 by the Tokyu Car Corporation for the Long Island Railroad as stainless bi-level commuter cars. Retired by the Long Island Railroad in 1998 and sold into private ownership in 1999. Most operating passenger cars in the Heritage Rail industry are approaching 70-90 years of service. By industry norms a car that has had a service life of less then 30 years is considered a new car. Each car set (2 cars) are semi permanently coupled together with a fixed drawbar which provides a total capacity of 360 passenger per car set. All cars have full HEP, heat & A/C, the one drawback is that the cars have platform level doors. This can be easily addressed with using portable event stairs. Since the cars are under 40 years of age, Amtrak certification could be simplified but would need Amtrak approval.

Some of the mechanical details include: Stainless steel construction, H couplers (cars were built with transit couplers, converted to H couplers) , full Head End Power, floor and OH heat, air conditioning, electric decelostats, rotating end cap bearings, serviceable wheels, rubber diaphragms, pa system, 480v/120v electrical system, emergency windows, emergency lights, 3/2 seating, restroom, vestibule doors at each end of each car which enables rapid loading and unloading, ADA accessible seating.  The cars are equipped with 26-C brake valves, see parts list in listing documents
