CB&Q modernized heavyweight business car #94 GENERAL JOHN A. HULEN in private ownership. Built by Pullman in December 1915 in Lot #4362 as the Plan #2521B 10 section (10S) sleeper-lounge observation NORTH GATE for the general service pool. Changed to Plan variant #2521E in October 1930 and repainted at that time from Pullman Green to MILW Maroon & Orange. Repainted back to Pullman Green in May 1934. Sold to the Burlington at the 12/31/1948 divestiture as #673 (1st), later renumbered to #640 (2nd). Withheld from lease in October 1949 and subsequently rebuilt to business car #94, later to subsidiary FW&D. This was likely when the name GENERAL JOHN A. HULEN was applied, as Hulen was the first president (as of 1930) of the Burlington-Rock Island RR, a 50-50 joint-CRI&P/CB&Q (C&S)-owned company in Texas. The #94 later went back to the CB&Q. At this time, it is unknown when the car was retired and sold; no further disposition info. Scanned with an Epson V550 from an original Kodachrome 35mm slide. Exact date is approximate.
