The Illinois Central's pre-war streamlined coaches (2600-03) for the City of Miami established the basic design for their post-war P-S coaches. The major lot divided into two plans and served as the backbone of IC's lightweight coach fleet. The larger of these was the group of 27 56-seat coaches built to plan 7531 and delivered in early 1947. They were assigned to the best of the IC trains, specifically The City of New Orleans, Daylight, Green Diamond and Land O'Corn, but they operated on lesser trains in pool service. 18 carried place names, and the cars were used during Amtrak's first months, but only one (2640) was briefly owned by them. The cars were later widely dispersed and many saw several owners.
