Reconfigure Coach car #162 into an Edu-trainment Car
Car #162 was built in 1949 by the Budd Company for the Pennsylvania Railroad. It was originally built as 21-roomette sleeping car. It was rebuilt in 1963 as 76-seat coach. It was rebuilt again in 1991 by Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) Train Service to an 80-seat configuration. In 2000, it was owned by Akron Metro RTA and leased to Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Ownership was transferred from Akron Metro to CVSR as an in-kind contribution on October 29, 2013. It was used as a parts car since its arrival at CVSR. In 2018 the car was re-built and readied for the Edu-trainment Car, which will provide interactive exhibits, programming and activities for children. The expected completion date for the Edu-trainment car is September 2019.
