#800045 CARITAS & #800069 CIMARRON RIVER
Title:  #800045 CARITAS & #800069 CIMARRON RIVER
Description:  Both of these cars were built in 1948 by P-S in Lot #6769 to Plan #4153 as SLSF 14RM-4DB sleepers #1450 PIERRE LACLEDE and #1466 CIMARRON RIVER, 2 of 24 such sleepers built in that Lot, which was ordered in August 1945; cars were delivered between January and June 1948. SLSF owned 17 (#1450-#1466) and MKT owned 7 (#1500-#1506). The Katy cars and 7 of the Frisco cars (#1450-#1456) were built for the TEXAS SPECIAL; the other 10 Frisco cars were built for the METEOR with RIVER-series names. In 1965, Frisco sold 12 of their cars to CN as #2095-#2106 with FALLS-series names; PIERRE LACLEDE as #2095 CHURCHILL FALLS and CIMARRON RIVER as #2105 RAINBOW FALLS. The CHURCHILL FALLS was sold by VIA in 1983 to High Iron Travel, which reconfigured the car to 4DB-1SR sleeper buffet lounge observation CARITAS, and the car is now owned by Iowa Pacific as SLRG #1. The white, light gray, maroon & orange paint scheme seen here is the second variation of three of the CARITAS unique Art Deco paint scheme, the car is now painted in IC Chocolate & Orange. The RAINBOW FALLS was sold by VIA in 1983 to Andy and Tony Marchiando-Meteor Rail Incorporated, who returned the car to METEOR colors and the name CIMARRON RIVER. Photographed from the WB #5 CALIFORNIA ZEPHYR. EXIF: 2:06 PM, f/4.6 @ 1/125
