Equipment Information

Chicago & North Western “Floyd River” is an all-steel heavyweight sleeping car. It is designed for long-distance accommodation and features a mixture of private rooms and open seating that was convertible into bunks separated by heavy curtains for nighttime accommodation. It was transferred from Pullman ownership to the Chicago & North Western in 1948 and was renamed “Pierre” in 1953. After it was retired from passenger service it was used by the railroad as a maintenance-of-way and storage car.
