Built in 1950 by the Pullman Company for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad as a 5 double bedroom/buffet/observation lounge and named the "Wolverine Club". Shortly after taking delivery the car was sold to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and renamed to "Wawasee". The car was one of the observation cars that operated on the Capital Limited up to the end of B&O passenger service in 1971. After retirement by B&O the car was sold to Amtrak and operated as a crew/diner. After retirement from Amtrak, the car was sold to a private owner and renamed "San Diego Club". The private owner sold the car and it became the official business car of the Genesee & Wyoming Railroad and renamed "Pride of the Genesee". The car was once again sold to another private owner and renamed "Monterrey", which must suit the car because it has had the same name for the last 4+ owners. Wolverine Club was fully rebuilt and Amtrak certified and had a wood interior installed, it ran as a private car on American Orient Express, Grand Luxe and was finally sold for a planned passenger operation that failed to turn a wheel. That owner had planned on gutting the car to turn it into a parlor observation, luckily they didn't get too far into the process. The interior floor plan is pretty original with the exception that he Porters area was converted into a boiler/water heater locker. The car still retains it's five double bedrooms, kitchen and dining/observation lounge. The interior ceiling panels and some berths were removed, the Seller does have replacement berths. All restrooms in the bedrooms have been converted into a shower/toilet w/sink. Some of the mechanical details include: Good body and roof (car does not appear to be taking on any water), 26- brake valves (car is in date and can move on its own wheels), hot water circulating heat, 480Vg electrical system, missing evaporator, HEP, APEE bearings, OSSH, disc brakes, holding tanks, good wheels, electric kitchen, Microphor toilets. Car is missing a generator but was equipped.
