From the Richmond Dispatch, 10/23/1861, p. 2, c. 3

Excellent Arrangement. We learn that two ambulance cars are now in course of preparation at the shops of the Central Railroad Company in this city, the purpose being to run one in connection with every passenger train to and from Manassa. Each of these ambulances will contain twenty-two single and eleven double berths, capable of accommodating forty-four persons. Under the skillful direction of Mr. Chiles, the master of car repairs, they will be arranged with due regard to comfort and convenience, and will render the journey of the invalid soldier comparatively easy. It is probable that they will be ready in a week or two.
