Farewell is not Forever - Pt. 23: Milwaukee Road Baggage-Dorm

The second of the cars is a former Milwaukee Road baggage-dormitory car. In addition to having baggage space, it also provided sleeping quarters for passenger train crews.

This car was one of six such cars built in 1947 for the Olympian Hiawatha between Chicago and Seattle, and numbered 1309 to 1314. This car is not #1312, but could be one of the others. Some only had a single window in the baggage door. This one has two, which matches #1313, so it may be that car.
