  Built by Budd in 1951 for the Pennsylvania Railroad, numbered 7141, and named "Paul Revere". This car was used on the Pennsylvania's "Congressional" and "Senator" trains on the Northeast Corridor between Boston, New York and Washington, DC. Originally built as a Parlor Car with 29 seats and a 5 seat drawing room. To Penn Central ownership in 1968, the car was eventually conveyed to Amtrak and renumbered 3641, and operating still as a Parlor Car. Converted to a galley lounge in 1976 and renumbered 3327. From November 1976 to May 1977, the car was numbered 8367. Converted to Head-End Power from Steam Heat in August 1981 and renumbered 3125. Converted to a Cafe-Lounge car in 1989 and sold in 1995 into private ownership where it was used on the California Western Railroad where it became stranded in Willits, CA due to washouts on that line in 1998.
  Purchased in 2006 by Glenn Bowman, the car eventually made its way to Ohio and has since been rebuilt into a private Cafe-Lounge car lettered for the Pennsylvania Railroad and has kept its original name throughout its life. Aside from being a part of this excursion train, the Orrville Railroad Heritage Society has also used the car for its First Class accomodations on its own excursion trains.
