One of the first sleeping cars converted to head-end power by Amtrak for operation with their new Amfleet cars. Acquired by current owner in 1999. Major repairs and upgrades, including conversion to six double bedroom lounge configuration, completed in 2002. Renamed Mount Vernon in honor of George and Martha Washington’s estate on the Potomac River in Fairfax County, Virginia.
