During the 1930s and the early 1940s, the PRR modernized a portion of its successful P70 fleet. Most of these cars emerged from the shops with modern streamlined features included arched roofs, full width diaphrams, and skirting. The P70gsR was first introduced in 1939, rebuilt with narrow windows. They immediately went into service on all coach Blue Ribbon trains like the "Trail Blazer" . Late in 1941, 50 additional P70gsR coaches were built. While the floorplan remained unchanged, this second (and last) order was built with large picture windows that improved the view for the patrons. The P70gsR was used into the 1960s.
