Look under Business Cars in the Norfolk & Western listing of "Passenger Cars Photo Index." Two nice pictures of the 408.

 I'm trying to find a higher quality photo that appeared on Page 3 of the Sep/Oct, 1986 (Vol. 02, No. 05) of The Arrow.  Please see the attached photo.  I searched the Archives, but came up empty.  It's a picture of an ex-Wabash Baggage Car in N&W service.  The car was originally Wabash #375, then assigned N&W #1392, was converted to Power Car #408 in 1971 and is now Norfolk Southern #25.
Also, while the car might have been assigned N&W #1392 after the 1964 merger, I have found no evidence that the car was actually re-numbered and re-lettered for N&W.  But if anyone has information that it was re-lettered, or better yet has a photo, please let me know.
