Hey Forum!

I'm looking for pictures of MKT Business Car "400". I've located all of the pictures online as well as ones from the Katy Historical Society.

Thanks!

Where is it now?

Back in the late '60s I photographed two MKT office cars at the platform of Dallas Union Station -- not far from MKT's headquarters. I would have a very hard time finding the pictures now (I'll try when I have an opportunity), but I wonder if one was the 400? Where is it now? Seems like at least one of them ended up at the Georgetown (Texas) Railroad.

I took a few of the 403 much more recently when it was in Denver for ski train use.

Good Evening Glen,

Thanks for the help. Late 60's is perfect. The car went through a rebuild at some point. The post-rebuild 400 is what I am researching. The major spotting feature is the roller bearing trucks. Rumor has it, the cars still are on the Georgetown Railroad. The 403 is an amazing car. I was fortunate to tour the car when it was with 261 heading for Steamtown's grand opening way back when.

Thanks Again,
Bryan
