Specifically, DRDM has petitioned for one lightweight passenger car built in 1949 for Canadian National Railway (now Coach RPCX 422).

This car was purchased by DRDM in 2008 from the Locomotive and Tower Preservation Fund, LTD.

There has been one act of vandalism (with one cracked window; no resultant injuries) that occurred in the fall of 2009. The maximum authorized speed for this train is 45 mph, mostly rural in nature. The car operates in excursion service during two weekends in December, with two roundtrips on Fridays and four on Saturdays and Sundays (20 Polar Express trips; annual mileage is approximately 800). Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments.
