I have two questions regarding SAL Passenger trains.
(1) - When was the last run of the Palmland?
(2) - When did the SAl acquire the 52 seat light weight coaches (#6242-6251) from C&O?

C&O sold the coaches to SAL in June 1958. The full story of these and other ex-C&O (and ex-NKP) cars on the ACL and SAL, by Mike Savchak, is in the 3rd quarter issue of Lines South, which will be going in the mail in a few days.
The Palmland lasted until Amtrak (last run 4-30-71), although by that time it ran only to Columbia.
