BYCX #60 was built by the Pullman Company in 1918 as a 12-Section, 1-Drawing Room Pullman Sleeping Car named Kenosha. It was later converted to Pullman Tourist Sleeper #1766.
On December 13, 1948 it was one of 18 Tourist Sleepers sold to the Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railroad. The car was arrived in Vancouver, Washington on January 12, 1948 and was put in the shop in Vancouver on February 14, 1948. It emerged on April 30, 1948 as Spokane, Portland & Seattle Baggage Car #60.
It remained in service for years, long enough to become Burlington Northern property on March 2, 1970. It was put in Maintenance of Way service, where it first got its mineral red paint and white roof that it wears today.
In November 1975, Burlington Northern remodeled it into Kitchen/Bunk Car #976093. BYCX has restored its former Spokane, Portland & Seattle number.
Today, the car serves on the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad as a passenger coach. The interior of #60 is far from authentic, however the volunteers have made it quite comfortable, and it serves as an alternative to the open car.
