 Cool photos---reminds me of similar cars that were stored in Michigan City, Indiana around the same time frame.

Looks like these cars fared better than the ones that were stored in Los Angeles in the "Old Mexico" yard.

Interesting photos.  St' Louis was a nice central location for storage.

Here's an interior photo of one of those stream cars from the Amtrak Consist book.  Look at those classic lounge chairs!
I wonder if any of these cars survived?
