management would want some privacy.
I've never come across any reference to private car owned by the FJ&G.
They did run special trains (locomotive & usually 1 car) but using
the regular passenger equipment.
The only reference to any kind of private car I've read about is when
Webb (NYC&HR) would visit the FJ&G (Fall-Winter 1892-93). He had his
own inspection locomotive (Mohawk) and would usually have a Pullman
or private car in tow. He made several visits with the Mohawk until
he gained control of the FJ&G in 1893.
