Business Car Rosters
Author: joeycarroll

Hello All, I am looking for some insight on full business car rosters at the point of takeover for these railroads:

Rio Grande

Just a list of car names and typed would be perfect. I model the modern UP and BNSF trains, and I want to see what cars were left out at the mergers/ purchases.

utahrails.net has a large section of Union Pacific passenger cars and business cars owned by them.  Some from Western Pacific, Missouri Pacific
Southern Pacific and Chicago & Northwestern.

It's a good site.

The C&NW Historical Society has a book for sale of the business car fleet. I own a copy and its very detailed and informitive.
