UP 24400 Series (former Baggage cars)

Using Baggage Cars as Express Cars

In April 1969, Union Pacific reassigned 89 recently retired (or retired for the purpose) former Baggage/Postal Storage cars in the 5600-, 5700-, and two 5900-series cars. The cars were assigned numbers in the 24400-series. The cars were found to be unsuitable for express freight service because of their low roofs, which restricted the use of fork lifts inside the cars. Also, the existing 60-foot cars (24300 series) were able to handle the limited express traffic was being offered to the railroad. Most of the former baggage cars were reassigned to Roadway service and renumbered to the 9043200-series numbers during 1970. Some cars may not have received either their assigned Express Service 24400-series number, or their assigned Roadway Service 904200-series number prior to final retirement and sale. (David Seidel, email dated November 26, 2011)

Not all of the listed renumberings actually occurred. When those cars were renumbered to the 24xxx series, they were removed from Express service and lost their streamliner paint scheme, being painted freight car red. What I found was that not all of the 9xxx to 24xxx renumberings were actually done. In particular I recall, 9149 (now at the Colorado RR Museum) went straight from 9149 to 912040 - still in streamliner colors. It apparently was never numbered 24149 nor painted freight car red.
