Here is another acquisition that we are working on that we need your contributions!
This car is a rare car that both the Missouri Pacific (MoPac) Railroad and the Missouri Kansas Texas (MKT) Railroad has purchased.


It was built in 1929 for the Grand Trunk Western #891 Wabascon Lake (solarium lounge observation), to GTW #580 Wabascon Lake in May 1936, to Canadian National #580 Wabascon Lake in December 1956, to GTW
#15046 in 1965 (medical car, later converted to a rules instruction car in 1977), sold to a private owner in
Candiac, Quebec circa 2004, resold to NYGL #10 in the mid-2000s, acquired by Passaic Street Properties in
September 2020, donated to Operation Toy Train in September 2020.

Donate via the SARHM Company Store
