Album Info:During the Mid 1980's, while working on the CAGY King Cotton, we were looking for parts for the Waukesha engine. I remembered seeing Burger Train on US 49, near Mount Olive, Ms. (really in the middle of nowhere) and knew it had Waukesha engines on it. We got permission to get the parts we needed. The place was closed and for lease or sale. We got a chance to see the inside and take a few pictures. Later, CSX was looking for a good car to replace one that had recently been found to be in very bad shape and we suggested that they check into this one. They did and bought it and it is now the CSX Greenbrier! This car is a Counter Diner/Lounge with one crew room. It is a heavyweight car which the IC had modernized to run with their new equipment. If you had not seen the 6 wheel trucks, you would never have known it was a heavy weight. If you want to see what it looks like today, check out Jerry LaBoda's picture of it in 1992 at http://jmlaboda.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=888834 . Don't remember the exact year but it was winter time.
