Can't answer those questions; but since it was a business car, I would not
expect to see it on excursions. Besides, as a sleeper, it had limited seating
capacity, which would not recommend it for excursions. Didn't it eventually
become an NS business car?      Jim Nichols

Subject: Hollins College business car in excursion service

I'm looking for some additional information on the N&W business car "Hollins
College", #451.  How often was this car used behind the 611 or 1218 on excursion
trains?  Was it primarily used for multi-day trips, like the annual Independence
Limited?  How long did it maintain its N&W lettering?
