Built by Pullman in 1911, this car went into Pullman's general service charter pool and operated out of St. Louis, MO. It is one of the first private business cars made entirely of steel. The car was sold to the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad in 1933. It was assigned to their Vice President of Operations and based in Scranton, PA. The car was used by Presidents William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson for their travels from 1911 to 1916. Acquired by its current owners in 1992, the car underwent an extensive restoration and returned to operating service in 2002. Historical Information about this car provided by AAPRCO.
