Maybe another one, also in Mexico:

Mount Hood: Rebuilt as New York Central 19 (office car), then to NdeM 3522 Presidente Alvaro Obregon; photographed as recently as 2013. Note that this car has the same name as a later Spokane, Portland & Seattle lightweight car, No. 600, on the existing Great Northern lightweight car thread.

As reported by Greg Slaton in the Mexican Landmarks thread (http://www.rypn.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=36275), the Mt. Hood is indeed a surviving car:

This is ex NYC business car 19, ex Pullman Mount Hood, on Hwy 150 outside Veracruz, near Paso del Toro(at a PEMEX gas station).


302. Mt. Hood (Lot #4742, Plan #3521, 1923, 10S-buf-lng-obs)--sold to NYC and converted to business car #19 (3rd) (1948) sold to C.V.

I haven't seen the 8-5 "Clover Glade" mentioned here yet. It was rebuilt from 12-1-1 "Dungarvin" and went to the Katy at the 48 deaccession. It then went to Dr. Henry Renfert on his farm in Texas and was donated before his death to the Railroad and Heritage Museum where it is on display today, in Temple, Texas

It is very nearly complete on the inside, missing only a few things.

Does anyone know what happened to SOU 2496 McQuade (12S-1DR, 1924) after it left the TVRM? The roster I have just has the car listed as sold. Is she still around?

Thought some members of the group might want to see some recent photographs of car 155 on the list....Asheville (Lot #3848, Plan #2502, 1911, pvt. car, ex-Advance [1st])--sold to Algoma Central #552 Michipicoten (1944)

Also shows the name of the car.. under the dining room table as previously mentioned..

Interesting no less.

Thought some members of the group might find this interesting....Built in 1923 as a 10 section/observation lounge by Pullman and named Mt. Desert. Operated in general pool service until sold to the New York Central Railroad, after extensive rebuilding the car was outshopped as business car #20

Sold into private ownership and ran with name "Hiram" , later leased to Chicago South Shore before going out of date and rot and Amtrak's requirements sidelined the car.

Car is in Madison Illinois

Another survivor has turned up, which was discussed back on page #7:

MRLX1020 wrote:
The folks at the ACWR did a great job on the Defender project!

I was looking at that car and trying to research another similar car at the St. Louis Iron Mountain & Southern in Jackson, MO.
Through a local IC/GM&O passenger fan, I found out that the car in Jackson is the Matanzas - was originally used on the Havana Special, then ended up on the GM&O - could be a sister car to the Azalea? It's been a few years ago since I have been through the car, and I recall it having sections, and maybe a drawing room (could have been a lounge). Any info on it?

Thanks, MRLX1020, for the info on Matanzas!

217. Matanzas (Lot #4979, Plan #3967A, 1926, buf-lng, Florida Pool)--sold to GM&O diner-lng #401 Camellia (1945) converted to instruction car #106 to #66658 to St. Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern

The #400 Azalea has the following history:

Barnegat (Lot #4158, Plan #2415A, 1913, lng-buf-bag, PRR)--sold to C&A (1941) to GM&O diner-lng #400 Azalea converted to baggage-express #400

a. As diner lounge #400 Azalea: http://rr-fallenflags.org/acfx/gmo-d400asw.jpg (Fallen Flags photo)

b. As baggage-express #400 (still smoking from the fire): http://rr-fallenflags.org/gmo/gmo-b0400goa.jpg (Fallen Flags photo)


What I did not realize was that GM&O rostered two heavyweight cars as #400! The second #400 was the baggage car listed back on page #7, which was formerly the Barnegat. The first #400 was diner lounge Azalea, and was the sister car to #401 Camellia. Both were originally buffet lounge cars built to Plan #3967, of which only five were built, all in Lot #4979 (1926). Two were sold to GM&O in 1945 and converted to diner lounges. As already noted, the Matanzas was converted to #401 Camellia, and the #400 (1st) Azalea was converted from:

305. Cuba (Lot #4979, Plan #3967A, 1926, buf-lng, Florida Pool)--sold to GM&O diner-lng #400 (1st) Azalea (1945), renumbered to #2008 to make room for the #400 (2nd) and sold in 1970 to Al Coleman. Coleman sold the car to the Riverside Restaurant in Butzville, NJ, which closed back in 2006, and as reported in the thread linked to below, the Azalea is still there!

Also mentioned in the linked thread is that Al Coleman also owned a heavyweight sleeper:

Night Trail (Lot #6304, Plan #3980B, 1929, 14SB)--sold to NYNH&H (1948)

Does anyone know the current whereabouts of this car??
