RPCX 103 - Robert S. Bixler

Car Number 103

This coach was originally delivered to the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway, numbered 3155 in 1946 from the Budd Company, lot number ZA7, as a 52 seat coach.

The 3155 escaped the Amtrak consolidation being sold to the Metropolitan Transit Authority of New York in 1970 where it was renumbered 2438 and converted into an 86 seat car for operation on the Westchester - Harlem commuter line. MTA then donated the car in 1985 to the Valley Railroad Company in Connecticut.

Later that same year, the 2438 was sold for scrap.

Sold to current owner in 1986. The car was converted to 68 seats with room for satellite food service. Further improvements included paint work, new windows, carpeting added to the wall and ceiling and recovered seats.
