Also a lead of dubious quality, there is an old listing on the semi-defunct Railswap site. http://railswap.org/osc/classifieds/ind ... em&id=1831

That's the same car I was referring to.


Here is a screenshot from a 2013 YouTube video featuring the troop sleeper. It is apparently of Detroit and Toledo Shore Line heritage.

Before anyone asks, the NKP caboose pictured is gone as well.

Gone as well? Am I correct in assuming the Pullman is gone, then?

You are right Bill about Sarx 24,sorry about that. That is what I had heard in the past and did not pay much attention to it. After some investigation it appears Sarx 24 was a 40ft boxcar converted for use with the Speno rail train (with windows and doors) and then back to a boxcar at some later date.

As stated in my initial response in this thread, yes.

Thanks for all the input everyone! I took a look at the car on the Facebook page at Southern Appalachia Railway Museum but the boxcar pictured does not appear to be a troop sleeper to me. Here is a summary of the troop cars brought up thus far:

Sleeper: Youngstown OH, Mahoning Valley, sold
Sleeper: Grand Rapids OH, Victor Geckle, sold
Diner: NC Trans Museum NC, Showalter Collection, no trucks
Sleeper: Scranton PA, Steamtown, availability?
Sleeper: Latonia KY, owner? availability?

We definitely desire a car with the original allied full cushion trucks. I will attempt to contact someone at Steamtown but as I understand, they are presently without a Superintendent and thusly may not be deaccessioning any equipment for a while.

Please keep your suggestions coming and thanks to all who have responded so far!

Good luck finding one with an interior, let alone allied trucks.

Bill
