In Adamstown Pennsylvania there is a service center on the side of the road, but behind it and off to the sides are 5 train cars. By the looks of things, two Ex-PRR cabooses, two baggage cars, and an RPO. I have seen them before, but a recent trip brought them back into my mind. Does anyone know the story of these cars? One of the cabooses says "Annalee" on the side in cursive writing. The whole thing is attached to this service center by a platform looking thing. Pics coming soon.
Thanks,

By the looks of things, they are either part of a store, museum, or office.

I believe it started as an antique shop and went through some other roles. If I remember correctly the head-end cars are ex New York Central.

Edit: thanks to the link I now know what I used to know. One NYC car, the rest PRR.
