The 581 & 582 were withdrawn from N&W service in early 1958. May 1972 is much
too late for them to still be in the U.S.A. Jim Nichols

I looked back at the correspondence about the obervation cars, and did not see
the mention of a some what decent picture on Pg 56 of Classic Trains Summer
2011. Taken 21 May, 1972, PRR coach yards, Chicago.
