HISTORY (Continued)

Coach #77 was rebuilt by the C&S in 1915 and probably then given the bullnose profile roof if it hadnít been already. In 1928, with service declining and a number of other cars being dismantled, plans were made to convert coach #77 to a coach-baggage-mail car, but for some reason this was not implemented.

In the spring of 1938 coach #77 was one of the cars stripped down and equipped as bunk cars for the Platt Rogers, Inc. firm that dismantled the line from Climax to Waterton. It was dismantled in 1939 and the body sold.
