BA&P #441         
Built in 1910 by Pullman as an 84 seat coach, 1 of 51 such cars built in that Lot for the D&RG; cars were delivered between July and October 1910. 40 of the 51 cars were leased to the WP as #301-#340; 12 of these 40 cars had a smoking compartment (24 of the 84 seats) at the men's end, including the car seen here. The other 11 cars were initially numbered as D&RG #888-#898. After several years, the cars leased to WP were transferred back to D&RG(W); the first 25 cars were transferred by 8/25/1918; the remaining 15 cars were transferred between 11/1923 and 1/1924. All 51 cars were renumbered to the #900-#950 range, and as cars were modernized by the D&RGW (including ice AC, as well as Heywood-Wakefield chairs in some), higher #9xx-series and low #10xx-series numbers were applied. Some cars did not receive AC; D&RGW used these cars for extra capacity; a few of these cars were also renumbered. D&RGW sold 15 of these unmodernized cars to the Algoma Central in 1949 and 1950, including this car. At this time, the WP/D&RG(W)/AC numbering history is unknown.
