Number 0052 is a tool car, made from former Baggage Car # 61 in about 1980. Originally the car was a USATC Hospital car in the 893xx series, built by American Car & Foundry in 1944 or 1945. Converted to ARR baggage # 61 in 1948/49. It replaced an older prior ARR baggage car # 61 (which was converted to a work car in 1949). I don't have the original number for the car that was converted into baggage #61. - Don Marenzi
