Text:

This all steel passenger coach was built for Southern Railway Systems by the Bethlehem Steel Corporation in 1924. It has a seating capacity of 72. Withdrawn from service in 1959 for presentation by the Southern Railway Systems to this rail transportation museum, it represents the transition from wooded coaches of earlier days to the luxurious streamlined passenger coaches of today.
