To add on, Barger lists the 2nd Ellsmere was built on 11/28/1888, with 4 bedrooms. Was designated as Plan #3088A after the Pullman merger. Was renamed in 1900 to Pilgrim (2nd) and sold in December 1901 to Ringling Bros.

Interestingly, Barger has no listing for either the 1st or 3rd Ellsmere.

Is anything going on with the car?

Who did it belong to when it was still a private car?
