Two Mountains Appear In the Midwest Yard

Up until recently, the closest thing to a mountain in the Cleveland area was our  Pullman car Mt. Baxter. In July, two more "mountains" arrived on the lead track in the yard. They are RPCX 1292 "Going-To-The Sun Mountain" and RPCX 1291 "St. Nicholas Mountain". The observation lounge cars and a streamlined caboose are privately owned and will be stored at Midwest. Some work will be done on the cars while they are here. 

Rail car storage is one of the many services that MRPS provides to generate funds for our many projects. Currently there are five cars, including those in the photos, on site that are owned by Railroad Passenger Car Alliance (RPCA) members.
