    What was this type of car used for? Providing steam to passenger cars or other MOW equipment? Anyone has an action photo of it on a train?

    Yes to both. There is a Condren photo, which shows one of the steam generator cars providing steam to a 1964 era troop train at Fayetteville. Until all the steam wreckers and derricks were converted to diesel, the steam generator were used as a steam source.

    See FR 379 http://condrenrails.com/Frisco Catalog/ALCo-FAs.htm

    Karl,
    Was this a Frisco made in their shop car or was it made from other railroad manufacturer?

    Frisco built from baggage cars. I have a diagram in my stack of stuff. There is an article either in one of the FMIG issues or in the Museum’s All Aboard
