Rio Grande Southern Bunk Car No. 01789 (N)

Built in 1887, No. 01789 is the oldest freight car in Colorado. It was converted to a bunk and kitchen car to provide sleeping and eating space for railroad crews providing maintenance on water tanks so they did not have to return home each evening after work. The vertical pipe stored at one end of the car held a long rod used to clear lines that fed water tanks along the railroad.
