435 & 436

435 waits in Wheaton Yard still sporting its stained glass arch windows betraying its history as a former wooden car. The jumpers attached suggest that the car has just come from service, or is about to be coupled to another car and put out on the road.

A more "up to date" looking 435, seen here after modernization in Wheaton Yard. Behind it is car 436, the other former parlor car. These two cars had similar histories but had several slight external differences. As can be seen in this photo, the destination sign on 435 used two roller curtains (one for destination and one for class of train) like the Pullmans, while the 436 used a single roller curtain containing both sets of information like the Cincinnatis.
