ASR Sells Car to Raise Money for Steam Restoration

To help raise money for the restoration of a Reading steam locomotive, American Steam Railroad has sold former Frisco business car No. 1100 to Allied Rail Corporation of Ludlow, Kentucky.

ASR is restoring in a former Baltimore & Ohio roundhouse in Cleveland Reading 4-8-4 No. 2100.

The Frisco business car was built around the dawn of the 20th century and was once named Arkansas.

It served the Frisco, formerly known as the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway, until the late 1950s.

The car had been donated to ASR several years ago and the group said restoring it is not part of its current business plan.
