That SP&S Passenger Car At Soap Lake

X-463 was built by Pullman in June 1909 as SP&S coach 208. It was converted to outfit service as X-463 on May 14, 1940 (along with most of the all-wood passenger cars). The car was sold in July 1969. A shower was installed in 1948, indicating that it served as a bunk car. Trail goes cold after that.
It sat in Kahlotus for years before being moved to Soap Lake. It's sat there for over 20 years and was then put up on Facebook marketplace for sale.
