Reconfiguring Coach Car #6217 to an Executive Coach Car

Coach Car #6217 was built by the Budd Company in 1947 for the Seaboard Coast Line. Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (CVSR) acquired this coach in November 1996. CVSR is converting Coach Car #6217 to an executive coach with more comfortable seating, tables for serving drinks and snacks or hors d'oeuvres, new carpeting, paint and curtains, restroom upgrades and electrical improvements. The renovations also are intended improve the versatility of the car for use in a variety of excursions, serving individuals/families, businesses and community organizations. The expected completion date for the Executive Coach Car is September 2019.
