PRR
A Roster of Pennsylvania Railroad Business Cars

Introduction
 

Over the years a number of sources on business car information have appeared including the Pennsy Journal, various PRR picture books, and Wayner (and other) eqipment diagram books.  A Rick Tipton eMail about PRR busines cars provided the motivation and much of the information to build this list. He considered his list not factual, but an indication of how chaotic the history of business cars were -- it seems they were transferred a lot.  And every time they moved, they were renamed (though not renumbered). Over the years various names and numbers were applied to the cars and the list may not be complete and may have errors.
