New York Central cars shopped in Richmond

  Pullman cars assigned to the New York Central Railroad were usually shopped at the Buffalo, New York repair facility. The UP-SP-C&NW San Francisco Overland pooled sleepers with the New York Central Railroad for New York City-San Francisco trans-continental service through the city of Chicago during this period and these cars, especially the 10-6 River series cars, probably were shuttled into and out of that train to the shops.

  In June of 1956 one of New York Central's premier round-end observations, Wingate Brook, came west for a complete refurbishing. It received more than just the standard mattress replacement and interior recoat. The interior was completely redone with new carpet, plush, curtains, tiling, center lamps, reading lamps and brakes. The 41-C trucks were replaced with 41-C-11. Its' stainless steel finish was relettered using diagram CED-4494E.

  In 1958 NYC withdrew all it's sleeping cars from Pullman lease and operated the cars themselves. When Amtrak took over most passenger service in the US on May 1, 1972, Wingate Brook Became Amtrak 3260. The car was eventually sold to Kasten Railcar Service and survives today.
