Oliver Hazard Perry - May 15, 2000
The private railroad car, Oliver Hazard Perry, previously named the Resplendent, was restored and renovated by Bob Willets of the Lancaster and Chester Railway Company.
The Resplendent was built by Pullman-Standard for Canadian National Railways as one of six identical Mount series and went into service as the Mount Resplendent in 1954.
CNR rebuilt the Mount series and the renamed Resplendent was placed in transcontinental service in 1982.
The Resplendent was purchased in 1990, upgraded mechanically and restored to original 1954 CNR exterior colors for private car service.
The year 2000 restoration completely altered the interior and the exterior was changed to 1950 Louisville and Nashville colors.
The car was named in honor of the famous naval hero, Oliver Hazard Perry by Robert B. Morgan, a native of Perry County, Kentucky.
