I should have attached this to my earlier reply. Here's my photo of the car
in 1987 and a link showing the car more recently in private ownership.

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

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?
