FL: FEC's home made power car
Author: Lackawanna484

Florida East Coast has at least two business cars which are frequently called on for shipper specials, Santa specials, etc.  Here's a 2015 picture of the home made power car, and the two office cars.   The power car is an electric generator unit, and a fuel tank.

I know it serves its purpose, but that is one butt-ugly addition to their nice passenger cars!

It looks better than the one used on the train of camp cars we stayed in while working the rail gang; I'll bet it was more reliable than ours (which would run out of fuel or break down from time to time), too.

That smooth side car on the rear looks like it was kitbashed from a sleeper with sections at one end.

The use of a well car does not block the view out of the coupled passenger car as a boxcar or similar power car would.

Good Idea.

Maybe, but still ugly.

Not sections--duplex roomettes.
