The 704 and 705 numbers are from their time on the Ohio Central.  There was a recent discussion in this group of the restoration being undertaken on the former CB&Q 7158.

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…
