Tennessee Valley Railroad Office Car #98

Tennessee Valley Railroad Office Car #98

According to the marker:
Office car #98 was built in 1917 for the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. It was first used by the President of the railroad before being assigned to a vice-president the following year. Such executives would have used the car to tour the railroad making inspections of tracks and facilities along the way. The car features a kitchen, crew quarters, dining room, three staterooms, two restrooms with showers, and lounge. Appointments include mahogany paneling, brass fixtures and stained glass interior windows. Today, TVRM guests may charter the 98 on our longer excursions to enjoy their own private car experience.
