Santa Fe 113 – Chair Car
This car was built in 1938 by the Budd Company as Santa Fe No. 3105, a 52 seat chair car (coach). AT&SF No. 3105 was part of the first EL CAPITAN trainset, which entered service in February 1938.
The car was sold to the Penn Central RR in November of 1969 where it was converted into a 108 seat commuter-coach, No. 2413.
The Cedar Rapids & Iowa City RR purchased the car in the early 1980’s for excursion service and renumbered it No. 113. In 2001, the car was rebuilt by the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad into a 72 seat coach. The car was purchased by ORM in 2005. The car is currently named “The Oklahoman.”
