Built by Pullman in 1925 for the Great Northern Railway, it was originally named "Thompson" and was a 12 Section - 1 Drawing Room Sleeper. Operating on GN's "Oriental Limited", it was placed in Pullman pool service in 1931 and operated as such until being sold to the Chicago & Great Western Railway in 1948. The car was rebuilt in the early 1950's as an office car with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, a dining room, observation end platform, kitchen and crew room. The car operated on the Chicago & North Western Railway's office car fleet until 1996 when it was sold to the North Carolina Department Of Transportation. The car was purchased by its current owners in 2006 and was redesignated as a Georgia Railroad car and named "Dearing". The car has had a complete mechanical update with completely rebuilt trucks and refurbished understructure. Today, the car features 2 bedrooms, 3 baths, crew room, dining room, kitchen, observation lounge and platform. Historical Information about this car provided by AAPRCO.
