American Freedom Train Car #7700

This ex-B&O 24-8 Budd slumbercoach (built February 1958 to plan 9540, Lot 9691-211 for service on the Columbian between Baltimore and Chicago) was owned by the High Iron Co. Its name was Slumberland (former B&O 7700, future Amtrak 2096). The car was used for sleeping quarters for the restoration crew of 2101 at the Hagerstown roundhouse. As with cars #448 (diner) and #200 ('Splendid Spirit' observation car), this car (lettered AFT) accompanied T-1 #2101 on its test runs in March 1975. Currently in storage at Avalon Rail in Milwaukee, WI.

If anyone has information about this sleeper -- car number, heritage, photos, current disposition -- please email us . Thanks go to Jon Clark, J. D. Floyd II, and Dan Quiat for much of the information on this car.
