RBBX 41301

This car was originally built by the Budd Company in 1949 for the Pennsylvania Railroad Fleet of Modernism as a 21 Roomette Sleeper named Anderson Inn and numbered PRR 8242.  The car was rebuilt in 1963 as a 64-seat coach, 12-seat smoker and numbered 1541 for service for the 1964 Worlds Fair. The car then went to serve for the Penn Central as PC 1541, and later to New Jersey Transit as NJTR 5416 until 1989. Upon retirement from commuter service, the car was sold to the United Railroad Heritage Society of New Jersey and subsequently acquired in 1992 by Ringling. It served in the RBBX Blue Unit configured as a kitchen/lounge with 5 bedrooms. The car is now numbered PAXX 8242 and is awaiting rebuilding into a coach/table car.
