#800144 IMPERIAL LEAF
Title:  #800144 IMPERIAL LEAF
Description:  Built by Pullman-Standard in March 1942 in Lot #6668 to Plan #4069H as 4 double bedroom-4 compartment-2 drawing room (4DB-4C-2DR) sleeper IMPERIAL LEAF, 1 of 31 such cars built in that Lot, which was ordered in April 1941; cars were delivered between March and April 1942. 18 of the cars were built for the OVERLAND pool with IMPERIAL-series names, 11 of the cars were built for the GOLDEN STATE with GOLDEN-series names, and 2 cars were built for the PANAMA LIMITED. The 18 cars built for the OVERLAND pool were sold on 12/31/1945 to joint ownership of the UP, SP, and C&NW. This joint ownership arrangement lasted until 1947, when 12 of the cars were sold to UP, 2 cars were sold to SP, and 4 cars, including the IMPERIAL LEAF, were sold to C&NW. These 4 cars were retired in 1965 and sold in 1970 to William W. Kratville's Autoliner Corporation, which rebuilt the IMPERIAL LEAF to a business car configuration for Charter Wire. The car to the left is Charter Wire's GOLDEN MOON, a 2 master bedroom-1 double bedroom sleeper lounge, which was also rebuilt from a 4DB-4C-2DR sleeper built in Lot #6668. Scanned with an Epson V550 from an original 35mm slide, brand is unknown.
