"The 2 cars that were painted red and owned by Colorado Railcar were Slumbercoaches NYC #10380/#10817 Tonawanda Harbor and NYC #10800/NP #333 Loch Tay."

These 2 cars are privately owned and are stored on blocks in the weeds in Strasburg, CO.

On the Ozark Mountain pages for these cars, it mentions that they were planned as crew sleepers for the Marlboro Unlimited

Tonawanda Harbor: http://www.ozarkmountainrailcar.com/detail.asp?id=848&n=Tonawanda-Harbor

Loch Tay: http://www.ozarkmountainrailcar.com/detail.asp?id=847&n=Loch-Tay

I had noticed pictures on Jody Moore's Colorado Railcar website and John Combs' Alaska RR website of these cars at the Fort Lupton facility:

From Jody Moore's website, specifically Feature #5, a tour of the Fort Lupton facility:

In the above photo from Jody Moore's website and in the main photo on the Ozark Mountain page for the Loch Tay, I noticed a third car, also painted deep red, and in the above Jody Moore photo, a fourth car in Amtrak Phase I. Does anybody know the identities of either of these cars? Thanks in advance!

From John Combs' website, specifically the delivery photos of Ultradomes #1054-#1057 for Holland America's McKinley Explorer:

http://alaskarails.org/fp/me/crm/done/index.html

Photo is of the first Ultradome after completion, parked outside at Fort Lupton with 1 of the 2 Slumbercoaches:

The 3rd red car is a former Amtrak, former Army SLC 1952 baggage dorm. The car in Amtrak paint is what may be the only surviving baggage dorm from the Mid-Century Empire Builder, built by ACF in 1951. Both cars, like the others in the picture, were on blocks, sans trucks.

The GN car is owned by the same party who owns the 2 slumbercoaches. It was painted Big Sky Blue a few years ago and is currently stored in an industrial park in the Denver area. It is fairly complete inside, everything considered, but as can be seen the car is missing a few items underneath.

I am about a week out in having a new Update for the Passenger Car Photo Index finished and one of the things I have made an effort to do is make it easier to track cars down as their ownership changed. Many cars now have links for subsequent owner listings (except for Amtrak) which will make tracking them down a bit easier.

I checked Jerry LaBoda's website for info on Blue Ridge #105 and #106:

Jerry lists the #106 as ex-BAR #106, exx-VIA #5740, exxx-CN #5740, exxxx-#2135 Grande Riviere, nee-FEC Oriente. Seen here as BAR #106: http://rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=851276 (Raymond Stewart photo)

Jerry lists the #105 as 1 of the Dayniter chairs converted from a 22RM sleeper, but looking at photos of the #105, I have determined that this is not the case. The paired windows reveal that the #105 was also converted from a 10-6 sleeper, and as the #106 came from the Bangor & Aroostook, it is logical that the #105 is also ex-BAR. In that case, I can identify the heritage of the #105 as: ex-BAR #105, exx-VIA #2132 Moose River, exxx-CN #2132 Moose River, nee-FEC Venezuela. Seen here as BLRX #105: http://rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=2485960 (John Owens photo)

Thanks Ted for the information, I had a gap in my database, and had the cars listed twice. But the pictures, reminded me of the horrible Daynighters that were converted from "RIVER" series by VIA in 1978. They plated over several windows, but neglected to install or to move windows so each seat would have access to a window, leaving about 8 seats with a wall. Wonderful, when assigned to Western Canada and tourists wanted to view the scenery. Daynighter class was allowed access to the dome cars in off season, but heavy summer months the domes were only for sleeping car passengers.

I am appreciating this site, as because of the Federal Government mandated VIA Rail cuts, between 1990 and 1995 VIA disposed of almost 500 passenger cars, so lists are not very accurate, so fourtunatley many acquiring VIA equipment has continued to use VIA's numbers, helping sort and ID.
