The New York Century (1940) 5 car passenger set includes a railway post office car #5017, a dormitory-lounge car #Century Lounge, a diner car #682, a 17 rommette sleeper car #City of Cleveland, and an observation car # Bedloes Island.

While the Pennsylvania's rival Broadway Limited equaled the Twentieth Century's speed and accommodations, the Century was the clear winner in the public's eye, usually running in two sections to meet demand while the Broadway ran with empty seats. In styling the interiors for the 1938 Century, Henry Dreyfuss made frequent use of subdued blues and grays and leather seating - creating an elegant setting to complement the exciting clientele that frequented the Century, a favorite of movie and theatre people and businessmen on the rise. One highlight was the dual-purpose dining cars, whose white linens were replaced with rust-colored table cloths when the cars became the "Cafe Century" night club after dinner.
