RBBX 41304 / PAXX 8257
Built in 1949 by the Budd Company for the Pennsylvania Railroad’s fleet of Streamliners in the Fleet of Modernism as a 21 roomette sleeper named Elmira Inn. Converted in 1963 as a 72 seat coach for Worlds Fair service, it later went to the Penn Central and then New Jersey Transit. The car was retired in 1989 and sold to the United Railroad Historical Society. Ringling purchased it for use on the Blue Train in 1991. The car was used exclusively by the Torres Family Globe of Steel riders. Purchased by Paxrail in 2017, the car was renamed the Elmira Inn and numbered PAXX 8257.
