General Notes:

a. Built in 1957 as UP 5711-5745 series Postal Storage cars; renumbered to UP 24400 series Express cars in 1969; renumbered to 900000 series Roadway Tool cars in 1970
b. Lightweight steel construction; UP generally favored aluminum as the material of choice for their passenger cars. This 1957 order to AC&F included two car types - baggage cars as well as postal storage cars - that were very similar in appearance from the outside. The reason for steel vs. aluminum construction for these late-model cars is not known, but subsequent orders of additional head-end cars to ACF and St. Louis Car Co. reverted to aluminum construction (except for nine baggage RPO cars built in 1963 by Budd).

1. UP 7011 was sold to Auto Train 708 in June 1972; to James E. Strates Shows in December 1981; to Kasten Rail Car in 1984; to Hartwell Lowe Corporation, Yucca Valley, California as HLCX 1898, "Marion Mattison"; sold to Northern Rail Car in January 1988 and converted to Dome Diner; in service as Scenic Rail Dining 7011 "Mountain View" (800558) in 1988-1989; sold to Transcisco Tours in October 1990 for "Sierra 49er" service, numbered as "Emerald Bay" (800558); car was repossessed after Transcisco Tour's bankruptcy and returned to Northern Rail Car in August 1991; leased to Kalamazoo Lake Shore & Chicago in August 1991 for Michigan Wine Country Dinner Train service; returned to Northern Rail car and sold to UP in May 1993, numbered as UPP 7011 "Missouri River Eagle" (This history may be for the former UP 7011; see Note 3, below)
2. UP 7012 was sold to Auto Train 707 in June 1972; to Merrill Ervin, Kanakee, Illinois in December 1981; to John McGoff in 1982; moved to Williamston, Michigan, painted non-UP yellow and numbered 7007; sold on November 8, 1991 by McGoff estate (via D. F. Barnhardt) to Blue Mountain & Reading Railroad (later Reading Blue Mountain & Northern RR); painted dark green as RBMN 3, "Catawissa"; sold (via D. F. Barnhardt) to FNM in Mexico as FXE 149015 in September 1999; seen at Kansas City en route to El Paso on March 1, 2000. (This history may be for the former UP 7012; see Note 3 below)
3. The difference in histories between UP 7011 and UP 7012 is a confusing mess. Is the current UPP 7011 "Missouri River eagle" actually the former UP 7011, or is it the former UP 7012. Much depends the actual history of Auto Train 707 and 708, and the subsequent sale and re-sale of both cars after the bankruptcy of Auto Train. This roster assumes that at some point in one of its many rebuilds, someone discovered evidence that Auto Train 708 was actually ex UP 7011, rather than ex UP 7012, as first reported in Randall's 1973-1974 Railway Passenger Car Annual, published in 1974. (See also Phil Dohmen's commentary here.)
4. UP 7013 was sold to Alaska Railroad 7013 in May 1972; converted to self-contained electric power (HEP) in 1981, numbered as ARR 500
5. UP 7014 was sold to Alaska Railroad 7014 in May 1972; converted to self-contained electric power (HEP) in 1996, numbered as ARR 502
6.

UP 7015 was sold to Auto Train 709 in June 1972; sold in December 1981 to A. J. Daniels, Tulsa, Oklahoma; sold to KCS Industries in 1982, numbered as KCS 22 (never in service, still in Auto Train colors), stored at Mid America Car, Kansas City; sold to Northern Rail Car; sold to UP (still in Auto Train colors) in October 1990, arriving at Council Bluffs on October 21, 1990; refurbished and numbered as UPP 7015 "Challenger".

a.

UP 9000-9014 delivered as rear end cars; remodeled to mid-train in 1955

The following comes from Steve Orth:

There were no lights on the tail end of the 9000 series cars.  These cars were delivered in 1955 as an end-of-train "Dome Observation" car.  In May or June 1956, all 15 were pulled from service and modified to be mid-train "Dome Lounge" cars.  They returned to service in November 1956.  At that time, all lights on the tail end had been removed.

For UP 9003:

Between February and April of 1955, the American Car & Foundry's St. Charles, Missouri plant near St. Louis completed a total of 15 (9000-9014) blunt-end observation-dome-lounge cars for the Union Pacific in Lot 4096. (Described in builder record as five bedroom-observation cars) The first five, 9000-9004, were delivered for service on the City of Los Angeles, operated over the rails of the Union Pacific and the Milwaukee Road between Los Angeles and Chicago.

After being purchased by Auto-Train in June 1972, they remodeled the former UP 9003 into what they called a "Maxi-Dome", which included 24 revenue seats on the main level, 20 revenue seats in the dome, and a bar and small lounge under the dome. Auto-Train ended its service on April 30, 1981, and AUT 903 passed into private ownership following the December 8, 1981, auction of Auto-Train equipment at Sanford, Florida. Late in 1988, Northern Rail Car Corporation purchased the car from Classic Rail Travel.

Northern Rail Car filed for bankruptcy in September 2001, after Virginia Railway Express canceled its contract, and was essentially out of business by March 2003, amid accusations and law suits between William Gardner, owner of Wisconsin & Southern Railroad, and owner of Northern Rail Car Corporation, and his son Daniel Gardner's claim that his father was to turn ownership of Northern Rail Car to him.
