Atl and West Point Helen Gould Car : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

The Reading and Northern Railroad in Port Clinton Pa. is the owner of Atlanta & West Point buisness-observation car built by Jay Gould for his daughter Helen. Can find little or no information about this car. Sorry, do not have former car number or other info. R&N purchased car from former restuarant complex in Wilkes Barre, Pa. Does anyone know anything about this coach?

I believe you make reference to the A&WP 100. Built by Jay Gould as the 'Stanraer' or 'Stranraer'. Used as the A&WP/GA RR office car (for presidential use) until about 1953. Sold about 1975-1976. If you need any additional info maybe I can help. Please be specific.
