Here is an update to the current status of 7 of the World's Fair Daylight cars:

Daylight Coach SW #542 "Sonoma" was built for the SP Coast Daylight in 1954 by P-S in Lot #6940 to Plan #7571B as 48 seat coach #2355. To Amtrak #4842. Retired 10/1981. To Sierra Western Railroad Company as SW #542 "Sonoma". Stored in Scotia, CA (at the Pacific Lumber Company). Sold to Jon Clark 2011. Moved by highway to live rail at Napa, CA. For sale 2013.

Daylight Coach SW #544 "Mendocino" was built for the SP Shasta Daylight in 1954 by P-S in Lot #6940 to Plan #7571B as 48 seat coach #2358. To Amtrak #4844. Sold 9/1983 to Sierra Western RR Co. as SW #544 "Mendocino". Stored in Scotia, CA (at the Pacific Lumber Co). Sold to Jon Clark 2011. Moved by highway to live rail at Napa, CA. For sale 2013.

Daylight Coach SW #546 "Humboldt" was built for the SP Shasta Daylight in 1954 by P-S in Lot #6940 to Plan #7571B as 48 seat coach #2361. To Amtrak #4846. Sold 9/1983 to Sierra Western RR Co. as SW #546 "Humboldt". Stored in Scotia, CA (at the Pacific Lumber Co). Sold to Jon Clark 2011. Moved by highway to live rail at Napa, CA. Held.

Daylight Coach SW #507 "Shasta" was built for the SP Shasta Daylight in 1949 by P-S in Lot #6805 to Plan #7571 as 48 seat coach #2387. To Amtrak #7507 in 1973. Retired 11/1977. To Sierra Western RR Co. as SW #507 "Shasta". Stored in Willits, CA. Scrapped 2008 at Willits - minor fire damage.

Daylight Coach SW #511 "Stanislaus" was built for the SP Shasta Daylight in 1949 by P-S in Lot #6805 to Plan #7571A as a 48 seat coach. To Amtrak #7511. To Sierra Western RR Co. as SW #511 "Stanislaus". Stored in Willits, CA. Sold to Jon Clark 2008. Moved by highway to live rail at Los Angeles, CA. Held.

Daylight Coach SW #500 "San Joaquin" was built for the SP Shasta Daylight in 1949 by P-S in Lot #6805 to Plan #7575 as "Timberline" coffee shop tavern lounge #10317.

Also note that the former SP 2397, owned by Pacific RR Society, is not Amtrak Certified. Many cars have Amtrak 800000 numbers that are not or were not ever Amtrak Certified. However, the 2397 did run on several Amtrak special trains prior to the requirements for 40 year rebuilds and HEP.


Thanks for the update, Topfuel! Thanks also for the clarification on the PAR #2397!

SP-AMTK Numbering Discrepancy:

I'm still trying to clarify the number discrepancy of ex-SP cars that were sold to Amtrak in 1973 and numbered in the #75xx-series. Different sources give different cars to different #75xx numbers, one consequence of which is I don't know which 1949 Shasta Daylight coach became Amtrak #7511 (later SW #511 "Stanislaus")!

Just to demonstrate the issue, here's the 2 complete listings of ex-SP #75xx-series cars from 2 different sources:

"Amtrak by the Numbers" gives this listing:

SP Shasta Daylight coffee shop-tavern #10317 to coach #2241 to AMTK #7500 retired 1976 to SW #500 "San Joaquin"
SP parlor #3002 to coach #2242 to AMTK #7501 retired 5/1975
SP parlor #3003 to coach #2243 to AMTK #7502 retired 5/1977
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2382 to AMTK #7503 retired 3/1976
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2383 to AMTK #7504 retired 11/1977 to office in South San Francisco
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2384 to AMTK #7505 retired 11/1977
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2385 to AMTK #7506 retired 1976
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2387 to AMTK #7507 retired 11/1977 to SW #507 "Shasta"
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2389 to AMTK #7508 retired 5/1975 to private owner as CBRX #2389
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2392 to AMTK #7509 retired 11/1977 to private owner
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2395 to AMTK #7510 retired 1976 to SW #510 "Tuolumne"
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2397 to AMTK #7511 retired 11/1977 to PAR #2397 "Shasta Springs"
SP Golden State coach #2401 "Golden Flake" to AMTK #7512 retired 11/1977
SP coach #2424 to AMTK #7513 retired 9/1975
SP coach #2439 to AMTK #7514 retired 1976 to Kern County Museum in Bakersfield
SP coach #2486 to AMTK #7515 retired 8/1976 to Antelope Valley Model RR Club in Lancaster, CA
SP coach #2487 to AMTK #7516 retired 5/1977 to Purdy Company to Evelyn Mills-Rocklin Transportation Center to Ed Purvis to Donald Krause-Rocklin Train Depot in Rocklin, CA
SP coach #2488 to AMTK #7517 retired 11/1977
SP coach #2492 to AMTK #7518 retired 5/1977
SP coach #2493 to AMTK #7519 retired 11/1977
***No entry for AMTK #7520***
SP Daylight articulated coach #2416-#2417 to AMTK #7521-#7522 retired 11/1977
T&NO Sunbeam articulated coach #506-#507 to SP #2455-#2456 to AMTK #7523-#7524 retired 11/1977
***No entry for AMTK #7525***
SP Coast Daylight articulated coach #2457-#2458 to AMTK #7526-#7527 retired 5/1977
SP Coast Daylight articulated coach #2463-#2464 to AMTK #7528-#7529 retired 11/1977
SP Coast Daylight articulated coach #2467-#2468 to AMTK #7530-#7531 retired 11/1977 to CWR #2467-#2468 to SWKR #2467-#2468 to PAR #2467-#2468
SP Coast Daylight articulated coach #2469-#2470 to AMTK #7532-#7533 retired 5/1977

"Amtrak by the Numbers" lists 2 additional SP coaches that were purchased in 1973 which did not receive #75xx-series numbers:

T&NO parlor #701 to SP #3001 to coach #2238 to AMTK (no number) retired 11/1973
The second listing is SP #2389!, which is also listed as AMTK #7508! (retired 5/1975 to private owner CBRX #2389). The second listing of SP #2389 also has a retirement date of 5/1975! My thought is that it could actually be SP #2398 (last 2 digits got flipped). SP #2398 was also a Shasta Daylight coach.

The other source has this listing:

SP Shasta Daylight coffee shop-tavern #10317 to coach #2241 to AMTK #7500 to SW #500 "San Joaquin"
SP parlor #3002 to coach #2242 to AMTK #7501
SP parlor #3003 to coach #2243 to AMTK #7502
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2382 to AMTK #7503
SP Shasta Daylight coach #2383 to AMTK #7504 to office in South San Francisco
***No entry for AMTK #7505***

SP Coast Daylight articulated coach #2469-#2470 to AMTK #7532-#7533

Can anyone clarify the discrepancy?

4 questions:

Does anyone know the name SW #541 carried?

Does anyone know the number "Golden Outlook" carried while under SW ownership?

Which, if any, of the GWT cars listed above (other than AT&SF #511) were used on the Eureka Southern excursions?

Were there any other cars in the Sierra Western-Great Western Tours fleet for use on the Eureka Southern excursions?

Additions and corrections are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Quick question I do have relating to these cars...in the 1982/1983 time period, at least three of these cars were leased to the McCloud River and used on a small handful of excursions behind their #25. The cars were painted a Northern Pacific-esque two-tone green at the time. The cars I know were in McCloud were the #510 (Tuolomne) and the #500 (San Joaquin). The third car appears to be the #507 (Shasta), though it could have been the #511 (Stanislaus) as well. Anyone know for sure?

I vaguely remember hearing a story once explaining why they were painted NP before getting the Daylight colors, but I don't remember specifics at this late date.

Where else did these cars see service between the time Sierra Western bought them and when the Worlds Fair Daylight came along?

I don't know how those 2 cars ended up on that list, but Sierra Western never owned either of them.

Also, note that former 1949-built SP Shasta Daylight coach 2387 (Amtrak 7508) was also owned by GWT/Sierra Western after acquisition from a private owner in Mojave, CA. The interior had been mostly gutted and presumably was bought for parts. It was painted in the 2 tone green scheme but they never ran it. Scrapped June 2008 at Willits, CA account minor fire damage.

GWT/Sierra Western also owned 2 ex-UP lunch counter diners, ex-Amtrak 8341 and 8342, built by SLC in 1959, and ex-NP diner 455, built by PS in 1947. All stored at Willits, CA and were never used. The NP diner was painted in the two tone green scheme. All 3 sold to Jon Clark and still stored in Willits.

Does anyone else recall the episode of the show "Moonlighting" where a murder mystery takes place on a train, and it's an all-daylight consist, but lacking the SP road name? I always laughed when they'd show that on syndication...

PAR is Pacific Railroad Society, Inc. of the greater Los Angeles area. The car is not listed on the Society's website.

However, when the car was acquired arrangements were made to move the car to Orange Empire Railway Museum for renovation work. OERM's website lists the car(s) and notes that it is owned by Pacific Railroad Society. The car bodies are off the trucks and the trucks disassembled for overhaul. The trucks may have been reassembled; but, still need to be placed under the bodies.

A couple of updates:

The Cascade Club triple-unit kitchen/dormitory - dining room - bar lounge car (1949, Cascade) previously owned by Golden Gate Railroad Museum (SP 10280-10282) has been owned by the Pacific Locomotive Association at the Niles Canyon Railway since 2006. While a lot has happened on this car in the past few years, there is much work remaining.
http://www.cascadeclub.org/Cascade_Club/History.html

SP Articulated Chair Car 2473-2474 (1941, Coast Daylight) has been owned by the PLA since 2008, and is currently operational. Interior restoration is well underway, but continues. The exterior of the car has been restored to the 1960s tomato-stripe scheme.

Thanks, Topfuel, for the updates on the cars used for the World's Fair Daylight, for the clarification concerning the ex-SP cars in the Amtrak #75xx-series, for the information on the two cars that Sierra Western didn't own (#2353 & #2985), and for the information on the four other cars that were on their roster (#2387, #8341, #8342, and #455)!

Thanks, Jeff, for the information on the Sierra Western cars that were used on the McCloud River Railroad!

Thanks, Brian, for the information regarding the #2467-#2468!

Thanks, Randolph, for the update on the #10280-#10282 and the #2473-#2474! Great work being done there at Niles Canyon!

Additions and corrections are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Sierra Western RR Co. (SW) 48 seat diner #156 Lake Pepin, built in 1948 by P-S in Lot #6768 to Plan #7540 as SLSF #650 Alexander Doniphan for the Texas Special (originally 36 seats). Sold to GN in 1966 as #1156 Lake Pepin. Sold in 1979 to Sierra Western.

The Alexander Doniphan/Lake Pepin is currently listed on Ozark Mountain Railcar:

http://www.ozarkmountainrailcar.com/detail.asp?id=1512&n=Frisco-Dining-Car--Alexander-Doniphan-NEW

As are four of the Daylight chairs acquired by Jon Clark in 2011:

http://www.ozarkmountainrailcar.com/detail.asp?id=1513&n=Southern-Pacific-quotShastaquot-Coaches

83-C-5 #2355 (1954, AMTK #4842/SW #542 Sonoma)
83-C-5 #2358 (1954, AMTK #4844/SW #544 Mendocino)
83-C-1 #2392 (1949, AMTK #7510/SW #510 Tuolumne)

The fourth car is listed as #2396, which is incorrect, as the #2396 was retained by SP, renumbered to #222, later instruction #219, and is now owned by CSRM.

The fourth car should be 83-C-1 #2395 (1949, AMTK #7511/SW #511 Stanislaus)

The two 1954 chairs are listed as steel with OSH trucks, while the two 1949 chairs are listed as aluminum with ISH.

".....As are four of the chairs acquired by Jon Clark in 2011:

[url]http://www.ozarkmountainrailcar.com/detail.asp?id=1513&n=Southern-Pacific-quotShastaquot-Coaches[/url]

83-C-5 #2355 (1954, AMTK #4842/SW #542 Sonoma)
83-C-5 #2358 (1954, AMTK #4844/SW #544 Mendocino)
83-C-1 #2392 (1949, AMTK #7510/SW #510 Tuolumne)

The fourth car is listed as #2396, which is incorrect, as the #2396 was retained by SP, renumbered to #222, later instruction #219, and is now owned by CSRM.

The fourth car should be 83-C-1 #2395 (1949, AMTK #7511/SW #511 Stanislaus)

The two 1954 chairs are listed as steel with OSH trucks, while the two 1949 chairs are listed as aluminum with ISH."


The ad is correct as listed. The fourth car that is for sale IS the former SP 2396, also owned by Jon Clark and acquired from CSRM in 2011. The 2396 wasn't part of the World's Fair Daylight "All Daylight Consist". Former SP 2395 is owned by Mr. Clark but is not for sale. It is stored in the City of Commerce, CA.

Quick question I do have relating to these cars...in the 1982/1983 time period, at least three of these cars were leased to the McCloud River and used on a small handful of excursions behind their #25. The cars were painted a Northern Pacific-esque two-tone green at the time. The cars I know were in McCloud were the #510 (Tuolomne) and the #500 (San Joaquin). The third car appears to be the #507 (Shasta), though it could have been the #511 (Stanislaus) as well. Anyone know for sure?

I vaguely remember hearing a story once explaining why they were painted NP before getting the Daylight colors, but I don't remember specifics at this late date.


Jeff--

Besides the #500 San Joaquin (#10317/#2241) and #510 Tuolumne (#2392), the two other SW Daylight chairs painted in NP Loewy Two-Tone Green were the #507 Shasta (#2385) and #508 (name unknown) (#2387).
