#10433 San Francisco Bay, sold in 1958 to CN #2070 Val St. Patrice, rebuilt in 1973 to baggage-14RM dormitory #9475. Current status unknown.


NYC 10433 "San Francisco Bay" has been found again. Up for sale on Ozark Mountain Railcar in their upcoming auction on 12/2/2015. Sitting at Chanute, KS next to the SKO (Watco). Unsure who the current owner is. Richard Longpre bought it in 95 after VIA retired these. $1000 staring bid, and according to OMR it is interchangeable.

Thanks, James, for the update on the San Francisco Bay/Val St. Patrice! For the curious, SKO is the South Kansas & Oklahoma.

Parlor Lounge Observations, 13 Cars, Budd, Lot #9638-004, 1948, NYC Lot #2177:

Ordered in March 1944 and delivered between April and June 1948. 30 parlor seats and 10 lounge seats in the observation end.

#66 listed by Link as retired in August 1966 and sold to KCS, listed by Randall as retired in 1964 and sold to NdeM. Not listed by Wayner, so sale to NdeM might be incorrect, or the car was never placed into service. Current status unknown.


As posted by Brian Norden in the "Budd Observation Cars" thread, the #66 is now located in Vernon, CA, at the southeast corner of Alameda and Vernon. Now the question is, who exactly acquired the #66 from NYC, and when?

Part Two: Postwar Lightweights, Continued:

Diners:

Grill-Diners:

18 Cars, Budd, Lot #9644-004, 1948, NYC Lot #2178:

Ordered in March 1944 and delivered between March and May 1948. #450-#466 were built with 20 aisle-facing seats in the "grill" section at 8 tables, and 24 seats in a traditional dining section at 6 tables. The 10 cars remaining in service in 1973 were sold to Amtrak. Link lists different dates to Amtrak for each car, these dates might represent when the car was actually renumbered. Some of the dates listed by Link are from 1972, and 1 is as late as 1978. By 1972, with the continued PC bankruptcy proceedings and Amtrak negotiating what equipment would be acquired, it might've already been agreed that these 10 cars would be sold to Amtrak, effective 1973, hence some cars having already been renumbered, in advance.

#466 to PC #4566 to Amtrak #8338 in May 1974 (Link), converted in November 1980 to HEP #8514, in my notes I have this car as stored in 2007, while Warner lists it as retired in January 2007, subsequently sold (when??) to ITAX, then to Gateway as MRLX #8514. Current status unknown.


The #8514 has been renumbered to MRLX #466 and placed in lease service to Iowa Pacific in IC Chocolate & Orange (I'm assuming this is a vinyl application over the stainless). Used in the consist of the Polar Express on Iowa Pacific's Grenada RY (former IC/CN Grenada Sub), as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5TAdb86EiQ

#9199 to Amtrak in 1976, planned as #1255 (not applied), to MofW department in March 1977 as #17031, no further disposition information. Current status unknown.

Footnote regarding cars sold to AFT: of the 2 cars acquired by AFT whose former NYC #91xx-series numbers are unknown, one became power car-dormitory #200, and is now UPP #205, and the other became power car #111, was later UPP #206, was resold in 2001 to Dave Varilek, then resold later that year to the Museum of America's Freedom Trains, and was resold in 2004 to the Pacific RR Preservation Association/Friends of the 700 as PRPX #111. Both of these cars had also been resold to the Canada Discovery Train, and were then also resold to UP. All other cars which reference this footnote are presumed to have been scrapped, except that the AFT website lists that 2 additional #91xx-series cars were acquired, but were not modified/rebuilt for use: one was scrapped (trucks [and possibly other parts?] saved), and the second is now in Willits, CA. The NYC numbers for these 2 additional cars are also unknown, for a total of 4.

Existing cars: one car whose NYC or Amtrak number is unknown is/was stored on the San Diego & Arizona Eastern at Jacumba, CA, along with a AT&SF (later Amtrak) leg rest chair (coach), also # unknown (which was leased to the San Bernardino RHS at one time). I also don't have info on the current/past ownership for either of these.
