Dick Horstmann was one of kind PV (Private Varnish) owner. The "Lehigh Valley 353" was a beautiful car that Dick and his one man crew kept up to date. I met Dick many times as an Amtrak Conductor running out of Albany. He was great to have on the rear of our trains (he kept the LV 353 on the siding at the old NYC East Syracuse station)....always inviting you back for coffee, and talk (when it wasn't under contract for a party). That car was so smooth riding...like riding a cloud (or an old Buick!!). When Dick got sick, we lost track of him. Don't know what happened to him or the LV 353....but I will always remember the LV 353 on the rear from all points (NYG/NYP, Boston, Montreal, Syracuse, NFL...etc).
