Chris Balducci General What is that car between the last locomotive and the first coach? God bless. 8/1/2011 1:04:45 PM
Jonathan Vincent General Chris, it appears to be a "Power car". I think these basically were used to supply steam for the the passenger cars. This allowed locos that did not have steam generators to be used on passenger runs. 9/1/2011 9:44:10 AM
