Over 1000 P70s were produced between 1907 and 1929 by a host of builders including Altoona. They were in service into the 1960s! These 80 ft all-steel coaches were originally equipped with 88 seats, but in 1926 they were produced with 80 seats standard. The P designation refers to passenger coach. The 70 indicates the overall length of the passenger compartment.
In 1933, the PRR began to include ice-air conditioning in the cars. These air conditioned coaches were reclassified as P70R.
