Featuring "all the comforts of home," the car contains: An observation lounge with open rear platform, Four staterooms, Galley, Dining room likely with fine china--Spode Copeland's china from England was sometimes used in private cars, Two bathrooms and two showers, and Crew's quarters for the cook and porter.
