    Thank you Karl, It was most certainly 1602,07,10,or 11. One of those with the grill in the rear. It was end of train everytime we rode on it and I guess we were just standing in the vestibule. My memory wants me to believe it was an observation platform, but shoot, I was twelve and 14. Great times to remember. Now I know what to look for should I model the Frisco. Thanks for your research and willingness.

  8. What book are you guys posting the floor plans from? I work with the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum here in alabama. We own the Buffet Lounge 1603 - Glendale. We also own the Frisco coach 1062. I would love to have a copy of the equipment roster book for the Frisco if that is what you guys are posting drawings from. Does anyone have the drawing for the 1062 that they could send me? This car is in service on our museum railroad currently.
