here is what I have on the CNR "VAL" series. I did get to travel in these cars both as a sleeping car and Daynighter, so there is a bit of personal history. Added info is in bold.
#10418 Humber Bay, sold in 1958 to CN #2066 Valois, rebuilt in 1973 to baggage-14RM dormitory #9478. 1978 to VIA, 1990 (Sept) to Rail Voyages Ltd.
This car was later resold to Pittsburgh Transportation Museum Society (PTMX, commonly referred to as PTMS), and is now located in Orrville, OH, at the former Art David Rail Services/Dabo, Inc. facility now owned by Orville RHS.
Additions and corrections are welcome. Thanks in advance.
