Hmm, did a quick search and couldn't find anything. I haven't been assigning line item numbers to the several surviving all-wood or wood-and-steel-composite cars which have come up in this thread, but of course I'll make some inquiries as to what car this is.

And I stand corrected for calling it a Wood car as it certainly appears to be a steel car.

Hmm...interesting...it could be an all-steel car or a wood car later rebuilt with steel sheathing. I see in the photo that they claim it was built in 1898, but I've learned to take claimed dates with a grain of salt until the history is confirmed (like when it's claimed a car was used by a specific President).

Click forward about four photos. The raised panel interior, and the amount of carving, would seem to indicate a steel sheathed wood car. The wood interiors in steel cars were typically much plainer.

Here's an interesting car:

Thread from February 2003: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5109

This was among the MILW and SOO equipment privately owned in Rockford, IL, at least some of which ended up being moved to the Colfax RR Museum.

Two possibilities for how this car was modified:

As posted in that thread by Peter Nicholson:

Peter Nicholson wrote:
I have been in the car - it is a kitbashed Pullman converted to MofW service with a new end fabricated at Milwaukee Shops using the 1934-pattern streamlined coach design.

As posted in that thread by Thomas Manz:

Thomas Manz wrote:
This appears to be most of an old 10-1-(-) sleeping car, and a short piece of a lightweight, open-platform branch line combine. The combos were built at the Milwaukee shops (in Milwaukee) in the mid-1930s. This bizarre mating must have been done in the 50s/60s, when combines for mixed trains were no longer in demand.

Well, using the 10-1-x configuration noted, here's what Tom Madden's CCR database tells us:

The Milwaukee Road acquired at the 12/31/1948 Pullman divestiture a total of 14 sleepers of the 10S-1DR-1C configuration (all from Lot #6043, to Plan #3973C, and all painted "MILW Std.").

Just for reference, there were a total of 30 10-1-1 sleepers built in Lot #6043, all originally for service on the Milwaukee Road; 14 of the other 16 cars were sold to: ACL (1), C&O (2), ERIE (5), NYC (4), and UP (2). The 2 remaining cars remained in Pullman ownership until listed as sold to scrap dealers.

As for the 14 cars acquired by MILW, most did not last long in Pullman lease, with 12 withdrawn between January and April 1949. The 2 remaining cars, Big Rock and Des Moines, were also withdrawn at that time, but re-entered Pullman lease in April 1955, withdrawn again in May 1956, and the Big Rock was again in Pullman lease from September 1956 to September 1958.

What I don't have is more info on the disposition of Milwaukee's heavyweight cars, including sleepers, so pinning down the history of this car shall remain open ended.

Also, was this car among the Rockville equipment acquired by Colfax, or was it ultimately scrapped?

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any photos of the car in question.

I posted regarding the first car, the ex-10-1-1 in Rockford, in the "Surviving Passenger Cars in the United States" group on Facebook, and the former Pullman ID remains unknown, just that in MofW service it was #X-595, as posted by Justin Nelson. But, then I thought to ask about the second car, and Justin replied that records show the #958001 was modified from baggage car #1915. Wayner lists that the #1915 was rebuilt from:

396. Mississippi (Lot #6043, Plan #3973/C, 1927, 10S-1DR-1C, MILW)--sold to MILW (1948) rebuilt to baggage car #1915 (c. 1949) possibly to baggage-express #2051 (unknown date) to MofW #958001 (unknown date) acquired by the Milwaukee Road Heritage Center, Montevideo, MN (unknown date)

Justin further did say in regards to the first car that:

Justin Nelson wrote:
When the rest of the equipment was moved out, that car was scrapped. This info came from the owner. The 3 lightweight cars that were in Rockford with x-595 survived. One went to Colfax, WI and the other two were moved to the owners property outside Rockford.


I recently acquired a slide of the MILW #X-595. Looks like the only thing replaced was the roof on about one quarter of the car; the rest, including trucks, windows, sheathing, and vestibule steps, were left as-is.

A car has popped up for sale on Ozark Mountain, according to the listing its a car named "Perry". The photo shows it as AT&SF MOW sleeper #199813 (I think). So presumably another, much modified, 12-1 car still exists.

I don’t know if this one has popped up yet, but what about the Pullman sleeper that Rapido Trains is restoring? I don’t know much about Pullman cars, but is that car a heavyweight? Also I believe that the RRMPA has a Pullman heavyweight.

The car that Rapido Trains has preserved is not a heavyweight. It is the former Canadian National/Via sleeping car "Edmundston" built by Pullman in 1954. It contains 4 Sections, 8 Duplex Roomettes, and 4 Double Bedrooms.
See this webpage: Saving VIA ‘E’ Sleeper 1115 Edmundston

The firm also has an RDC-1 and a "new look" GM city bus.

I don't see it in this thread, may have missed it, however, Sean Reed over at the St.Louis Southwestern facebook group confirms that this car still exists:

Lot 4816 Plan 3521 Mt. Sheridan which went to the Cotton Belt (SSW). It was then an instruction car, then went the Spaghetti Warehouse in Little Rock, then went to the White River Scenic, and is now at the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley as car WVC 120.

"Also I believe that the RRMPA has a Pullman heavyweight."

That's the Lotos Club which is already covered on this thread.

Another Survivor:

417. AT&SF MofW bunk car #196813, currently owned by the Timber Heritage Association of Eureka, CA. A video of this car turned up in my YouTube subscription feed on Monday evening, showing the car being moved from storage in Windsor to storage in Schellville, with the cooperation of the Northwestern Pacific (the NWP's President is a THA member). The car had been stored in Windsor in circa 1999-2000 by Wes & Cindy Vail.

The #196813 appears to be a 12S-1DR car, and I did a quick run-through of Wayner's heavyweight Pullman book, but the car's current number didn't turn up; there was 1 car acquired by AT&SF which didn't have a MofW number listed (which would've been applied at acquisition), and several cars which were initially placed in the #11xx-series for use as coaches, and many of these were later transferred to the MofW department, but the MofW numbers for these cars are not included. Does anyone know which car this is? Thanks in advance!

Here's a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-j8muJWrUA

That is not necessarily true. Depending on the condition of the car and the needs of the railroad it was not unusual for some cars to have sat for several years while the railroad decided what to do with them, be it rebuilt for use, used in MofW service or stripped of parts and scrapped.

Doing a quick search of Tom Madden's Pullman Car Construction Records I was able to turn up just one Pullman Plan 2410D car and no Plan 2410E cars, a car formerly named Burdette, which was sold to the ATSF in June of '56. According to Wayner's book the car was numbered 198652 which places the car close to the number of the car shown in the video.

The car's lack of AC ducts is a good indication that it served as a Tourist sleeper under Pullman's ownership, carrying the TC number 2602 before being sold to the Santa Fe. The question I now have is how accurate is Wayner's book??? Might this have actually been what the car was numbered??? We may never know for sure...

(Might there be a book on ATSF Maintenance of Way equipment which might speak more clearly to what various cars' numbers and histories might be???)

Which two cars are shown in the records as being scrapped, and what were the dispositions of the other four?

Thanks in advance.

Lake Alexander was removed from Pullman lease in January 1963 while Lake Borgne remained in Pullman lease until November 1964. No further disposition is mentioned, which is why I believe that these were the two cars that saw use in MofW service.

Lake Minnetonka was wrecked on the Seaboard in December 1953 while Lake Chicot remained in Pullman lease until February 1965, after which the car is listed as being scrapped.

Quote:
ACL acquired Puerto Rico, Lake Elmo, Lake Louise, Lake Pelican, and Lake Winnebago.

I didn't think about the ACL cars. This is what is listed in the book...

Lake Elmo was withdrawn from Pullman lease in November 1964 and scrapped, Lake Louise was withdrawn in August 1956 and scrapped, Lake Pelican became ACL coach 900 sometime after its withdrawl from Pullman lease in December 1959 (no further disposition info), Lake Winnebago was withdrawn in May 1960 and scrapped, and Puerto Rico was withdrawn in July 1960 and scrapped.

As discussed in the "Surviving Passenger Cars in the United States" group on Facebook, these 2 cars are not the Plan #3585A 10S-1DR-2C sleepers Lake Alexander (Lot #4817, 1924, North Coast Limited, to SAL #1251) and Lake Borgne (Lot #4996, 1926, Sunset Limited, to SAL #1250), but rather are:

273. Cameron Pass (Lot #6334, Plan #3979A, 1930, 8S-1DR-2C, C&NW)--sold to ACL (1948) to MofW #65310 (1962) to SCL #765310 to SBD to CSX to Gold Coast RR Museum (circa 1987)

274. Vassar College (Lot #4527, Plan #4042, 1917/34, 10S-2DB-1C, ex-Plan #2585D 10S-1DR-2C Moffett, UP, rebuilt for Havana Special)--sold to ACL (1948) to MofW #65348 (1960) to SCL #765348 to SBD to CSX to Gold Coast RR Museum (circa 1987)

The thread in the FB group also brought up that this donation/acquisition from CSX also included a 3rd unidentified ex-Pullman from the MofW department, so:

442. Unknown Pullman in MofW service as a "pie car" to CSX to Gold Coast RR Museum (circa 1987), used as a party car

Ouray (Lot #4998, Plan #3521A, 1926, 10S-lng-obs)--sold to CofG (1948) to MofW #32810 (1950) to private owner, St. Louis (unknown date) to Bill Hale (unknown date) to Waccamaw Coast Line, Myrtle Beach, SC (unknown date) to the Station at Cedar Yard, Charlotte, NC (unknown date) car like most at Cedar Yard was later scrapped (unknown date)

There have been several threads that have mentioned this car, and also mentioned was another car, a "heavyweight observation" (perhaps another Plan #2521/#3521 car?) that was once owned by Bill Hale and was later resold to Shortline Enterprises; that mystery car had formerly been located in Mobile, AL. Anyone have further info on this other car? Thanks in advance.
