Built in 1940 by the Budd Company for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad (#6502) as a 30 seat coach, attendants room, bar, observation lounge. Operated between New York City & St. Petersburg FL until the SAL merger with Seaboard Coast Line (#5802) and then the car operated in regular service over the entire system. Sold to Amtrak (#3802) in the 1970’s and operated on many of their east coast NY-Fl trains until retired and sold into private ownership. Rebuilt in the late 1980’s by private owner into an stylish Business Car with Art Deco accents and was Amtrak certified (car will need to be inspected by a Amtrak private car inspector to be re-certified). As you enter the car from the observation platform walk into a very large observation lounge/dining room (total day seating 20/sleeps 8), as you enter down the hall to the right of the lounge you pass the kitchen, original attendants room, 1 master bedroom and 2 double bedrooms. Some of the mechanical details include: 3 showers, 4 restrooms w/Microphor toilets and tanks, fairly new STADCO diesel generator, full kitchen, walnut interior, stainless kitchen, gas range, microwave, convection oven, electric heat, AC, full HEP, marker lights, rubber diaphragm, 27 pin, H couplers, good body and roof, OSSH drop equalizer trucks with APEE bearings ( car has updated trucks from an ex ARMY Hospital car), tread composition shoes, truck mounted cylinders, very thick wheels, D-22 valves, washer/dryer. Pacific Grove would make an great charter car in excursion service or a for use on a shortline/regional railroad for entertaining customers.
