Thanks to Rhett Coates for providing historical and current information on the cars.
|RBBX 40013 was formerly Union Pacific sleeper "American General".|
Circus Coach RBBX 42110 was originally a 10-6 sleeper built in 1950 by
Pullman as C&O 2603 "City of Mount Hope". It later became B&O 7050
"Allegheny", and went under the Amtrak banner as AMTK 2805 Allegheny.
It was acquired by the Circus in 1978 and later became part of the Blue Unit Circus Train. The show's Year 2005 roster of equipment shows that this car has now, sadly, been scrapped.
