Interesting bit of info on the Pullman "GLENGYLE", built in 1910; out of the 10,000 cars built to its configuration,  the historic "GLENGYLE" is the sole remaining example of its type......

Shameless Plug ->
 
For those of you who are interested in Midwest-Florida passenger trains, the PRR Technical and Historical Society will be producing a two volume set concerning the history of Midwest-Florida passenger trains, from the first through Midwest-Florida Pullman car line in 1875 through to the end of Amtrak's Floridan in 1979.  
 
The first volume should be available around May, 2014.
 
Check out the PRRT&HS website for further info.
