There were twenty 10 roomette, 6 double bedroom cars built by Budd in
December, 1949 and January, 1950 to plan 9523. All were intended to be
named for counties, but 11 were named for colleges and universities. The
"County" cars were - Augusta County, Campbell County, Franklin County,
Mercer County, Mingo County, Pike County, Pulaski County, Scioto
County and Wythe County. The college/university sleepers were Duke
University, Emory and Henry College, Hampden-Sydney College, Hollins
College, Ohio State University, Randolph Macon College, Roanoke
College, University of Cincinnati, Virginia Military Institute, Virginia
Polytechnic Institute and Washington and Lee University. Years later,
PRR (or perhaps by then PC) bought these cars and configured them into
chair cars for New York - Washington service.
