RBBX 41307 after refurbishment -- Tampa, FL

Railcar Heritage of RBBX 41307 is as follows:

Built as former Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) stainless steel, 21-roomette sleeper No. 8267 ("Lewistown Inn") in 1949 by the Budd Company, using Pullman Plan #9513. Rebuilt in 1963 as a 64-seat coach with 12-seat smoking lounge, and renumbered PRR 1505. Became Penn Central (PC) 1505 in 1968. Sold to New Jersey Transit in 1976 and renumbered NJTR 5439. Traded to a private car owner in 1992, who in turn sold it to RBBB Circus. Rebuilt by RBBB at their Palmetto FL railcar recycling center, and entered service on the "RED UNIT" Circus as "RBX 38" -- housing members of the Circus BAND. Renumbered ["House Car Number"] 37 during 1995, with railroad reporting marks changed to RBBX 41307 during that year. Car would later (during the early 2000s) be placed into service on the Circus "BLUE UNIT," with "House Number" 186, where it is today (as of 2007). As of the Close of the Circus in May 2017 this car is now owned by the Dearing Railroad Columbus Ga.
