Baggage Cars:

25 cars, AC&F, Lot #04-4269, 1955, baggage-express-messenger:

Ordered in November 1953 and delivered between January and April 1955.

#3663 to Amtrak #1152 to HEP #1253 (1977). Stored in 2009. Current status unknown.

#3667 to Amtrak #1155 to HEP #1260 (1978). Active.

With Amtrak auctioning off almost all the remaining Heritage cars on property, these 2 were acquired by BNSF. No info (yet) on what the plans are, but I would guess either automated (unmanned) track geometry cars or HEP generator cars.

That is a curious bit of news because neither of those 2 cars were on Sale List #2 from last November of 2018.

As information, most bidders on that sale have only been officially notified within the last few weeks which cars were awarded and donated.
