Built in 1980 as a coach with a baggage room occupying part of the lower level of the car. Converted into a smoker coach with an enclosed, ventilated smoking room built inside the baggage room in May 1997 and renumbered 31530. Converted back into a standard coach baggage car in July 2005 and renumbered back to 31030 after Amtrak eliminated smoking onboard most trains.
