This was named "Andirondack Club" during the short-lived Pullman Rail Journeys experiment.  It brought up the markers many times during that period, as they felt it had more usable space than Ponchartrain Club.

It's always there, unless the car is bad-ordered and the only available replacement is a "cross-country cafe."

This is the first revenue trip for the car under new ownership after purchase at auction around 5 months ago.  It is good to see the car back on the High Iron.

Note the new BLUE RIDGE CLUB lettering is in the C&O font, as the car was built for the C&O.
