For Students of Railroading - A brief history.

Introduced in 1906, just before Henry Ford made famous the model “T” automobile, these cars were the defining characteristics of steam passenger trains for the Union Pacific, the Illinois Central, the Southern Pacific and other associated railroads. For the traveling public, this was a step up for people riding in wooden coaches that would break like a match stick in the event of a derailment. So durable were these all steel cars that some they lasted until 1968. A life span of 60 years!

The great Edward Henry Harriman who controlled the Chicago & Alton Railroad, the Union Pacific, the Southern Pacific, the Illinois Central, the Central of Georgia, the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, Wells Fargo Express Company, directed the development of the “Common Standard Specifications” among the Associated Lines. The Common Standard allowed common specifications of parts, car and locomotive design to be shared with all Harriman-controlled railroads. This allowed economical bid prices due to the sheer size of standardized orders. Further, it allowed the Harriman-controlled railroads to standardize on part inventories and method for car repair. These cars were designed with the all distinctive arched roof and diamond underframe crossbearers, a departure from the clerestory roof design.

Developed by the Associated Lines for all Harriman controlled roads, these wide window coaches seated 68 passengers on Hale and Kilburn reversible seats. These C-4 and C-4 (Common Standard Specifications CS 217) were built by Pullman 1909 to 1912 and numbered 395 cars.

Initial purchasers of these cars were the Illinois Central, the Oregon Railway & Navigation, the Oregon- Washington Railroad & Navigation (UP), the Oregon Short Line (UP), SP Pacific Lines (SP, CP, O&C) and Texas and Louisiana Lines (T&NO, GH&SA, H&TC, HE&WT). The most famous “second hand” purchasers was the 20th Century Fox used in Hollywood movies. Later, it became Sierra Railroad No. 11. These cars were introduced in 1909 and some lasted more than 60 years later.

All-Day Lunch Cars

SP Sacramento General Shops added lunch kitchen cabinet to 25 60-C-3 and 4 cars; and 6 60-CC-1 cars starting in 1916 through 1927. They provided lunch service to patrons on day coaches and tourist sleepers. Typically, these cars were placed near the head end of the trains, followed by day coaches and tourist sleepers. Regular dining cars were placed between the tourist sleepers and Pullmans. On long trains, two All-Day Lunch cars were used. The lunch kitchen cabinet was located on one end of the car which included a gas stove, steam plate, 2’-9” x 3’ refrigerator, coffee urns, sink, and serving counter. Only two cars were modified with air conditioning. Some cars were equipped with Waukesha propane system for power and others simply had their original gas tank for power. Some cars had a pillow locker installed on one corner blocking out the corner vestibule-trap door.

Fifth Release Announced - January 2010
Part #: WoT-183 - Southern Pacific Maintenance of Way Harriman Coach, "S.P. Line Gang..." - Red Oxide

Click photo to see large view

  • Number of pieces: 1
  • Road #: MW 833
Some quick notes:

During the late 1950's and early 1960's, Espee converted a number of their heavyweight passenger cars for Maintenance of Way services, since the reduction in passenger train service in conjunction with the newer lightweight equipment made these standard cars obsolete.  MW 833 is one such car that was downgraded yet still was in a good state of repair. This car was assigned to "S.P. Line Gang #2 Communication Dept."

Part #: WoT-187 - Union Pacific Harriman Coach, Drovers Service -Dark Olive

Click photo to see large view
  • Number of pieces: 1
  • Road #: 663
Some quick notes:

Coaches used in drover service transported workers who move their livestock by train.  They rode with their train carrying livestock between the ranch and the processing plant (slaughter house).  Union Pacific ran "fast" special livestock trains with drovers coah to Los Angeles over their LA&SL line.  The workers took care of their animals during rest stops.  With improvements to train and signaling technology, UP (c. 1947) was able to reduce their Salt Lake to LA trip from 32 to 27 hours.  This eliminated the mandatory Federal requirment for rest and watering the animals every 28 hours.  In the 1950's, UP just took 5 days from Omaha to LA. stock cars were loaded from Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho and were then assembled into "Stock Specials" (later "Day Live Stock") behind EMD F-3s, ALCo FA's or SD-24's.  This Harriman coach entered Drovers service in March 1957.  It was a former UP Oregon Short Line car built by Pullman 1910, Lot 3737, Common Standard Specifications 217, class 60-C-1.

Part #: WoT-198TS - Ferrocarril Del Pacifico Baggage + Coach,  Arched Roof car 65'-4" (coupled length) *

Click photo to see large view
  • Number of pieces: 2
  • Road #: 1100 & 1369

Some key points:

The Southern Pacific Railroad leased a number of Harriman baggage-express cars and coaches to SP de Mexico.  In 1951, SP sold a number of rolling stock to the Mexican government under the new ownership of Ferrocarril Del Pacifico.  FCP no. 1369 Harriman coach was formerly SP no. 1369, while FCP no. 1100 baggage-express car's former SP number is not known.  FCP operated from Benjamin Hill, Sonora to Guadalajara, Jalisco via Mazatlan, Sinaloa.  Ferrocarril Del Pacifico was absorbed by NdeM in 1984 when the Mexican government nationalized the railroads.

*Wig-Wag Note: We received two car numbers for the FCP baggage No. 1100 & 1110. The car will obviously come in one of the two numbers, but we have requested a confirmation on the true number.

Part #: WoT-180TS - Southern Pacific T&NO,  Dark Olive, One Harriman baggage & 2 Harriman coaches 65'-4" (coupled length ea.), 3-car Set
    2-axle trucks, straight underframe, flat ends
  • Number of pieces: 23
  • Road #s: 173, 746, 759

Click photo to see large view
Some key points:

Why the sublettered T&NO? SP's line east of El Paso operated under a separate title due to Texas law (1853) which required railroads operating in their state to be headquarters there - until the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the I.C.C. decision for KCS Ry., headquartered outside of the state, to lease a locally owned railway in Texas. Espee's Texas & New Orleans subsidary was merged into SP in 1961. § The principal companies of T&NO were Galvston, Harrisburg & San Antonio; Houston & Texas Central; and T&NO's own lines. The GHSA and H&TC were leased and later consolidated into T&NO in 1934.

T&NO No. 173 Harriman baggage car was formerly GH&SA 173, a 1912 Pullman class 60-B-5, and Harriman coaches were always T&NO, 1911 Pullman, class 60-C-4. The coach carried 72 passengers.

§ The last separate Texas railroad was the Fort Worth & Denver which finally merged into the BN in 1982.

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
