Introduction
 
Starting in the 1930s and lasting into the 1950s the PRR purchased new Streamlined equipment to refurbish the Blue Ribbon Fleet. This is a basic list of these cars with some basic modeling information about the cars.
 
The 10 Roomette - 6 Double Bedroom cars with Rapids suffixes are listed in the Rapids Series area. The 10 Roomette - 6 Double Bedroom cars without a Rapids suffix are listed in the Non-Rapids Series area.
