Converted for passenger use was at Sumpter Valley, OR. Sold to CHS for use on the loop as of 2005. Grant Houston Taylor Rush Photo

1101? Sumpter Valley OR Pipe gon, converted for passenger use, Grant beleives that this number is wrong since 1101 was retired in 56. The number 1110 was recently found on one side of the car and is most likely the correct number. Any early photograph of cars being deliver to SV clearly shows 1110. Grant Houston Taylor Rush

1102? Silver Plume CO
Pipe gon, converted for passenger use, Grant thinks this number is wrong since 1102 disappeared around 1910. A photo of cars being delivered to SV shows 1643 on one of the cars. Could this be 1643? This car has recently moved to the Loop (2005) after spending many years at the SV. Grant Houston Taylor Rush
