Apparently I can't tell the difference between Product Discussion and Prototype Info...

Anyone have more info on this odd GN coach?

I wanted a few GN cars to fill out my 10 car BN passenger train.
.. I ended up with 21 Empire Builder cars.

I think they are both ex Frisco cars. 1074 had its lower corrugations removed at some point.
