Equipment Information

C&NW 8784 is an all-steel baggage/automobile car. Cars like this were hauled in passenger trains and were mostly used for carrying passengers’ luggage, express freight, and other less-than-car-load (LCL) shipments. This car is unusual because it was fitted with full-width doors at one end so that automobiles could be driven aboard to be transported by train.
