Last May the Pacific Northwest railroad Museum announced plans to move a Pullman car off Bainbridge Island, ( I Think) to the museum.

Has anyone heard anything?

ted66 - I think this is the car you are referring to. The last I saw about this was on their website blog back in November:

"Monday, November 27, 2017 - Parlor car 1799. Parlor cars were extra fare cars on passenger trains that catered to the needs of the more affluent. 1799 operated between Seattle and Yakima on through trains. This former Northern Pacific Railway parlor car is located on an island in Puget Sound, and is included on the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation’s Most Endangered Places list. The owners have offered the car as a donation provided it is removed from the site. The project is ready to proceed pending receipt of development permits, which is expected to occur early in 2018. Support is being directed towards the cost of crane, barge and trucking fees."
