Southern Appalachia Railway Museum has been chosen as the new owner of former Southern Railway Coach No. 829.
The 52-seat passenger car is the generous donation from the Bluewater, Mich., chapter of the National Railway Historical Society.
The chapter considered several organizations to provide 829 a new home, and settled on museum based on its record of restoring and operating many pieces of former Southern Railway equipment.
The transfer was completed on Aug. 1.
