Everett Acquires 2 Heavyweight Cars

A Pennsylvania short line railroad has acquired two heavyweight passengers from a defunct California tourist railroad.

The Everett Railroad plans to operate the cars on its own tourist trains.

The cars were recently prepared for shipping from the Fillmore & Western Railway via Union Pacific.

The cars being acquired by the Everett include Powhatan Café, a parlor car built by Pullman for the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad; and the Rancho Sespe — named for a large Fillmore ranch — which was once operated by the Colorado & Southern Railway.
