Aha!  Apparently they don’t add cars to their photo roster until they are restored.  
They need to paint the cars in “Suburbanaire” colors rather than Pullman Green
as they would have to remove the vestibule enclosures for solid green paint pre-A/C open platform.

Haven’t seen any of the 700s that the Nashville commuter line got.   Missed seeing a train today that might have had them; the next one were ex-RTA smooth sides.

Something doesn’t add up….

Their website shows they have two Heavyweight PB-20 Coaches….one with a fishbowl smoker (??) CB&Q nos. 6144 and 6148.   They mention they are “commuter coaches” and the blurb about the work being done states they will be repainted in Coach Green.  The seat frames look to be from PB-20 cars as do the windows in the view. 

Problem is that 704 and 705 are not heavyweights but Budd gallery cars…
