Baggage #1255
Title:  Baggage #1255
Description:  Built in 1955 by AC&F in Lot #04-4269 as AT&SF baggage-express-messenger #3664, 1 of 25 such cars (#3660-#3684) built in that Lot, which was ordered in November 1953; cars were delivered between January and April 1955. Besides 2 cars which were wrecked, 1 scrapped, and 1 retained for MofW, Amtrak acquired 21 of these cars in 1971 as #1150-#1170; #3664 as #1153. In 1977-1978, 20 of these 21 cars were converted to HEP as #1250-#1258, #1260-#1261, #1263-#1270, and #1272; the #1153 was converted to #1255 in December 1977. This is 1 of 4 AC&F-built baggage cars still in Amtrak's active Heritage Fleet, and all from Lot #04-4269. The other 3 cars are #3662/#1151/#1257, #3667/#1155/#1260 and #3679/#1166/#1252. #1255 is in the consist of the northbound #14 COAST STARLIGHT at Portland Union Station. The presence of #1255 in this consist has resulted in what is now a rare occurrence on today's Amtrak: at least one car a piece representing 3 of the major car manufacturers: Pullman-Standard Superliner I cars, the Budd Hi-Level Pacific Parlour, and the AC&F-built #1255. EXIF: 3:30 PM, f/3 @ 1/60, ISO-100
