After almost a decade of work to restore it to operation, R1 103 made its debut in operation on the Holiday Train on December 29th, 2019. This car is unique for having been retrofitted with axiflow-type fans in the 1940s. These do an excellent job at circulating air and cooling the car. This is also the only R1-9 type museum car that has some fiberglass seats. Enjoy!
