NKP #125
Title:  NKP #125
Description:  Built in February 1930 by Pullman in Lot #6308 as a 36 seat coach-18 seat diner, 1 of 2 such cars (#125 and #126) built in that Lot. In 1940, both cars were rebuilt to a diner-club lounge configuration, with the coach section replaced by a 20 seat lounge (1 seat was at a writing desk), and the dining section was slightly moved from off-center (towards the kitchen) to almost dead-center; this allowed for the addition of 4 storage lockers, a crew locker, a conductor's desk and locker, and a refrigerator. Also, the vestibule at the former coach end was closed off, replaced by another locker and small restroom. In 1946-47, both cars were streamlined (#126 in '46, #125 in '47), and the number of dining seats was increased to 24, with the 3 2-seat tables on the kitchen passage side (seen in this photo) replaced by 3 4-seat tables. Following the 1964 NKP-N&W-WAB merger, these 2 cars were planned to be renumbered as N&W #1025 and #1026, which may or may not have been applied. The #125 was retired and sold in December 1965 to John W. "Jack" Ferris' Private Railroad Cars, Incorporated, which named it WABASH VALLEY. The #126 is listed as retired in January 1966, but not sold until 1973. It is possible, however unconfirmed at this time, that along with Pullman sleepers GLEN FEE and WOODLAND, that the Oregon, Pacific & Eastern RR acquired the WABASH VALLEY from Ferris. This would appear to be the case, as the #125, along with the 2 Pullmans, was later part of the collection of the Galveston RR Museum. EXIF: 2:52 PM, f/3.7 @ 1/320, ISO-100
