Built by the Pullman Co. in 1954 for the Florida East Coast Railroad for service on the train New Dixieland. Originally named the Scott M. Loftin after one of the former receivers of the railroad, in 1957 the car was reassigned to the trains South Wind & Gulf Wind and was later sold to Canadian National and then to VIA Rail. The cars interior configuration consists of 4 roomettes, 5 double bedrooms, 1 compartment and 4 open sections. The car is complete and would make a great museum display or private car. Some of the mechanical features include:D-22 brakes w/tread shoes, OSSH, 6.5 x 12 AP roller bearings, Canadian trucks, stainless over stainless construction (includes roof). H couplers, 64v DC electrical system, small water heater, all windows intact, carpet & upholstery in good condition, all mattress in place, steam heat, D/C air conditioning system, will interchange to CSX.
NOTE: The Florida Sunrise is a complete car in very original condition. As far as we know it is the last FEC car of this type still in it's original configuration. A quick interior dusting and the car would be ready as a public display.
