1. Ex-Southern Pacific bi-level commuter used on the Whitter Shuttle. More;
2. Added 6/15/15 by Terry Douglas, "I am in Homer today, and I noticed that ex ARR Bi-Level car 602 is "for sale" (see attached photos). It is sitting in a boat storage lot at the beginning of the Homer Spit (Windmill). The price of $49,900 is a bit high in my opinion, no trucks, and looking a bit rough in places on the outside. The interior looked reasonable, to the extent I could tell." (1, 2, 3)
3. Added 6/16/15 by Bryan Zak: "I sold 602 a few years ago and the folks that I sold it to that were going to make it into a home, but now have it for sale."
4. Added 11/7/16 by Robert Krol: "Number 602 was delivered in Soldotna. (1, 2, 3) It couldn't make the bridge in Soldotna and had to go through Kenai. It is currently at Batir Construction."; To become "Brew at 602" and paired with Addie Camp; construction photo - 1; ticket found by Mary in #602

Coach 7002   IL Illinois Railway Museum Museum exhibit D&RGW 1108 - "Silver Pony", coach, Amtrak 9448 (4/83-not applied), Alaska Railroad 7002 (2/84-not applied), Alaska Railroad 7033, Roaring Fork RR (10/86), DRCX 7033 (800447), Wyoming & Colorado (lease-86/87), to Canada for filming of "Narrow Margin" (6/89), stored Hudson CO, DRC Tours, Mexican American RY Nogales MX tour service in Mexico (1999). As of 2001, service terminated and car withdrawn from Mexico. Sold 5/04 in auction to Grand Canyon Railway. Car is apparently a goner. It suffered a derailment en route from the auction, was re-railed, and subsequently was crashed into somehow. Don't know what structural problems this caused, but word was they're not going to repair it. It was to be set on the ground as soon as they can arrange for a crane and used for parts. Later word was that they 'may' try to repair it. Status uncertain. Sold (along with entire railway) to Xanterra 9/06. Headed to Illinois Railway Museum in 2010.
