I am researching the display of equipment - called "The Parade of Progress" - that was a part of the NMRA's 1955 convention held in Baltimore. Equipment from the PRR, B&O, WM, M&PA and Canton railroads was displayed at the then-PRR's Mt. Vernon Produce Terminal, now the North Ave. Yard of MTA's Light Rail.

I have been havening difficulty determining the number/name of the PRR sleeping car on display. Any information would be appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi James
I am not sure if this is the PRR railroad sleeper you are looking for, it is part of the RR Museum of Pa collection.
The name on the car is Lotos Club No number on the car just name. the number #2 I added it is Not Part of the Car Number.

Not it.

I've gone through ALL our file photos, and as best as we can tell it's a smooth-sided lightweight of some sort, Tuscan red--but in neither photo can I find the name or number.

Thanks, Pat, for your response. As Alexander pointed out, it's not the same car. Although the Lotos Club is cool!

Alexander, that's all I've found too. I have reached out to other groups that might have photos; I am waiting and hoping for a break.
