COOK & DINING 04466
Randy took this shot of 04466 on October 29, 2008. According to the Work/Box
Outfit Cars book by Swanson & Horner, there have been three different
cars known as 04466. This particular photo is of the last car known as 04466.
The story goes that the 04280 and the 04466 swapped numbers in the mid 50s.
The photographic evidence seems to support the story. So that would suggest
that this car is really the 04280 and it does bear a strong resemblance to
the 1949 shot of 04280 in NG Pictorial Vol. X. See the complimentary car
This interior shot from August 25, 2008 provides a look at the food preparation
end of the car.
This must have been the dining end of the car.
Dick Bell took this shot in Silverton during November of 1976. The car
in the middle is the last 04466 with the car to its left being the second
04466 and the end number at this time still had 04466 on it. The side number
is either 04280 or 04266.
