Let's go for a ride on the Union Pacific car #308!
Author: jtwlunch

Scan from the Gibson collection, no date, location, or photographer noted of UP open air coach/observation number 308.  Who wants to ride this one now and meet an 18 wheeler driver?  Would be a fun car to ride on a scenic line.  Anybody out there who can fill in some details?

Thanks for the invitation to ride, but I fear (truly fear) the front will come to a stop and the locomotive won't. One of my life's goals is not to become a pancake!

I am thinking that this was an inspection car pushed by a locomotive, probably used by division officials.

RRs have cars similar to this now that run on the rear of their inspection trains.
