GBW 21 Combination RPO/Baggage, ex GBW 52 Coach
Title:  GBW 21 Combination RPO/Baggage, ex GBW 52 Coach
Description:  GBW X21 'Winona' on display at National Railroad Museum at Ashwaubenon, WI on 21 Jul. '14. According to http://greenbayroute.com/, it was originally GBW 52, a 60'-0" coach built by Hicks Locomotive and Car Works in 1908. Rebuilt as GBW 21, an RPO/baggage car in 1929-30. Renumbered GBW X21 and renamed ‘Winona’ in Feb. 1945; it was the "rumpus car" in the GB&W's Miller's Specials in the 1950s and 1960s. It was donated to National Railroad Museum in Jul. 1963. Sister GBW 20 was on display at Rapid River, MI for some time, but was moved to the Marion Area Historical Society at Marion, WI on 2 Jul. ‘13. GB&W donated sister GBW 22, ex-GBW 51, to the Wisconsin Historical Society in 1970 for display at Stonefield Village in Cassville, WI. I'm not sure if it is still there, it is not mentioned with the other RR equipment on their website.
