Genesee Valley Transportation Company will use a former Erie Lackawanna business car that was sold last month.
It has been privately owned by a series of owners since 1975.
One of those owners had it rebuilt to meet Amtrak standards for private cars and renamed it Phoebe Snow.
Most recently, No. 2 has been at the North Shore Railroad in Northumberland, Pennsylvania.
Genesee Valley operates four short line railroads in Pennsylvania and New York, including Delaware-Lackawanna, Depew Lancaster & Western, Falls Road, and Mohawk Adirondack & Northern.
