Baggage Car Update-Leave early, miss the fun

So I left early, figuring how much more could they get done. Quite a bit it turns out. In addition to removing the last of the attached pieces, they got an ID on the car!

Welcome NWP baggage car 605, formerly SF & NP baggage car #5, built in 1892, "retired" in 1939, back to the world! (NWP records say "condemned" as it is apparently also painted on the side. So disrespectful!


  1. What a treasure! There must be tremendous satisfaction in being able to bring a bit of history like this to life again.

    Thanks to you many people can see history and experience the beauty of the past.

  2. One man's junk pile is another's treasure box!
