Farewell is not Forever - Pt. 21: Passenger Cars

IMG_2122 2301 SE 4th Avenue

At this end of the line are four old passenger cars on a siding. The numbers 2301 on the end of the first car really have nothing to do with the car itself. These cars are semi-permanently placed here, and actually have an address: 2301 SE 4th Avenue.

Three of these passenger cars were originally owned by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad, more commonly known as the Milwaukee Road. They are not painted in anything close to their original colors; in fact, their current paint is similar to that of the Burlington Northern's passenger cars. However, the distinctive shape of the windows of these cars positively identifies them as former Milwaukee Road cars. These three cars seem to be used for some purpose as they are connected to electric service.
