Equipment Information

Grand Trunk 5316 “Melanie” is an all-steel heavyweight coach used on the GTW system between Chicago and points in Michigan. It is known as a “day coach” to denote its configuration for longer-distance transportation, with more comfortable seating than a short-haul commuter coach. It was rebuilt with modern features like a streamlined roof and air-conditioning.
