Brian L. about The Old Bag and the Silver Beaver
Thu, 04-16-2015 22:08
From the operations side, 1309 would be a welcome addition for appearances behind 1630 and give us more weight and therefore more brakes. When 1630 is [...]

Hello Russ The acquisition, in my view, is important in a number of aspects. First, we want to demonstrate and educate the public on RR use of a [...]

Hello Roger, and thanks for your reply last week. I am curious about the desire to bring 1309 to the museum. I understand the idea that it is [...]


Jeron G. about The Old Bag and the Silver Beaver
Wed, 04-15-2015 21:11
I meant to say the CNW 8609 instead of the 8784, but yeah that's an RPO/Bag.

To be purely technical, the N&W baggage (converted Pullman) used by the used bookstore and C&NW 8728 are heavyweights, however, they are used by other [...]

Mon, 04-13-2015 21:43
I see. I wasn't sure if the CNW 8784 or the Havelock car were considered heavyweight baggage cars. I've always liked the look of the 8784. Too bad [...]

We have a few cars that would be considered cafe/lounge cars, ATSF lounge dorm, IC Grill-Lounge, and the Dover Strait lounge-buffet-sleeper. We do not [...]

Just because there isn't a "full heavyweight CB&Q baggage car" in the collection, that doesn't necessarily mean we need one. Not aware if we already [...]


Brian L. about The Old Bag and the Silver Beaver
Wed, 04-08-2015 11:04
The key is that it STARTED life as an RPO-baggage. It is now a full baggage car, unlike 1923 which still has a 30' RPO compartment. We do not have a [...]

Hello Russ Yes, the baggage 1309 was once an RPO but the "Q" altered it into a full baggage, See pictures. Irm does not have a hvy wt car of this [...]

Red Flag: On 3/12, Brian said: "The car started life as a near copy of CB&Q 1923; our operational RPO Baggage car." Since we already have one of these [...]
