SL&RG Passenger Car Roster

To support the two new passenger trains started in May 2006, the SL&RG acquired a number of used passenger cars for the operation. If you have any background information on any of these cars, please let me know so I can fill in this rather sparse roster.

The various Iowa Pacific roads (the San Luis & Rio Grande / Rio Grande Scenic Railroad included) seem to trade cars quite a bit. Keeping up with what's currently on SLRG rails is dang near impossible. So, this roster includes everything that I've seen on the SLRG or has been reported to me as being there, or has been spotted wearing SLRG reporting marks.

Many of the cars carried RPCX reporting marks when they initially arrived on the SLRG. These seem to have been changed over to SLRG at this point.
