    There has been a slide/photo in circulation for some time of SLSF 202 in Pullman Green.* Does anyone have any info on this car such as it's paint date to Pullman Green and when it was returned to Caboose Red or some other color?* Any other information would be helpful as well, especially if you know why they painted a caboose green and why it was only one caboose.* Thanks.

    Ship IT on the Frisco!

    It's been awhile since this was posted. Anyone with some info or photos?

    All I could find was one photo in one of the FMIG mags.

    The Brasstrains web page has a copy of your photo sayin it was for a business train. An AllAboard article sayin' it was painted green for a directors special train of business cars. The AllAboard article didn't know dates either.

    I remember seeing 202 in Fayetteville AR in the summer of 1965. In the pullman green paint. Gale Hall

    202 still survives today, she is on display in Mt. Vernon Missouri and is in excellent overall condition. The Chamber of Commerce there owns her and takes pretty good care of her.
