Bingham & Garfield (Kennecott) business car 100 is preserved at the Sumpter Valley Railroad in Oregon, but I doubt you ever saw it in Oakland.

What was stored in the West Oakland Passenger Yard for a period of time was Lucius Beebe's private car "Virginia City" - also numbered 100 - back when it belonged to him or his estate (Charles Clegg). That's likely what you saw there.
