This 56-reversible seat coach was built in 1939 by the Budd Company for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad's Silver Meteor as #6200. It later became Seaboard Coast Line #5604, and became Amtrak #5604 in 1971. It was purchased by the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society from the bankruptcy estate of the Seattle & North Coast Railroad in 1985. It was lettered for the Willamette & Pacific Railroad for a business excursion. A model of this car is in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
