Jerry LaBoda General This is a rare treasure that hasn't been photographed in a very long time. Build as C&O 1900, a Budd lunch counter - lounge observation car it was selected for rebuilding into business car 19. When the president of the C&O, Robert R. Young, went to be preseident of the NYC he took the car with him, with it becoming NYC 28. After he commited suicide the car was sold to GTW, becoming their GTW Adios II. From GTW the car was moved to CN's business car fleet, first being numbered 90 and later being renumbered to 98 before being sold to a private owner who supposedly lived in Florida, who kept the car inside a building. Great to see this valuable piece of RR history back where people can see it!!! Great shot!!! Thanks for sharing it!!! 5/12/2015 3:47:07 PM
