Equipment Information

Metra 7658 is a bi-level coach designed for commuter service out of Chicago. It is known as a “gallery car” because the upper level is divided, with a gap (or “gallery”) down the middle of the car to enable the conductor to collect fares from both levels while standing on the main or lower level. This car is from the second order for bi-level cars placed by the C&NW.
