It's one of five extant ranch cars (that we know of). Originally six were built by ACF in 1951 for the GN. Five of the six are now accounted for. Still missing is 1240, Crossley Lake. The 1242, Hidden Lake, was moved to the Italian Swiss Colony winery at ASTI. I also think a coach was in the deal. That's the coach that you may have seen. Anyway, the ranch car with a nice interior is now at Brightside. Some work and a good paint job will be a great addition to the collection. You can find a lot more information on ranch cars if you google it. Thanks to Taylor Heavy Haul in Roseville.
