Would anyone happen information about/photographs of the Cheyenne?
Jeff, first of all, welcome to the group. Where did your father/grandfather work on the Frisco and what jobs did they do?
Getting to your specific question, I know that the Frisco did not have a "Cheyenne" business car. Do you have additional details or info?
"Cheyenne" is a business car in the UP "Heritage Fleet."
Thank you Chris. My Grandfather worked in the paint shop. He used to do the finish and detail on the woodwork in the business cars. He was the last one from his department in the car. The last thing he did, with an apprentice, was the 1976 Frisco bicentennial caboose. He retired after 44 years. My Dad was an electrician in the Diesel Shop. Retired after 36 years. Both worked in Springfield.
Thats neat, I knew the paint shop guy's and use to admire the work and watch them peal the stencils off. The same guy's worked in upholstery and made me a tarp, that I used for many years. I would venture I knew your dad also, I used to go in the electrical dept quite often. Back at that time, the paymaster use to come to the shop, to pass out the pay checks. Then it was lunch at the "Oasis" to cash the checks. The "Oasis" was a bar down by the old downtown depot. I got to walk through the "Cheyenne" in Bill, Wy when it first came to the CN&W yard their.
