Built by Budd in 1949 as a Diner Lounge for the Southern Railway. Acquired by Amtrak in 1979 when the Southern ended their own passenger service and renumbered 8383. Converted to HEP from Steam Heat in November 1984 and renumbered 8524. Operates today as a normal Heritage Diner. Historical information about this car provided by www.amtrakbythenumbers.com.
