Morning Sun's "Norfolk And Western Color Guide To Freight And Passenger Equipment"  has a broadside view of Hollins College, still in N&W paint I believe.  You might also try searching online for Jeff Lubchansky; he has a nice collection of Norfolk Southern business car photos.
Yes, it is an ex-Wabash car, originally purchased for a joint Union Pacific train.  It is very similar if not identical to UP's 12/4 sleepers.

  Hello all,

  I was wondering if any of you would know where I might be able to find side pics of the "Hollins College"  sleeper car.  The car number is 451 and it survived into the NS era, as NS 10.  I believe it use to belong to the Wabash on it's Western Sunset passenger train but that is all I know.  I hope you guys can give me some info, as I'm trying to build a model of the car.  I've asked the society but I haven't heard from them so maybe you guys can help.
