Ted Brumberg General Built in 1950 by AC&F in Lot #3125 as GN 9 seat lunch counter-12 seat diner-20 seat parlor observation (round end) #1147 RED RIVER for the St. Paul-Grand Forks train of the same name. In 1953, the number of parlor seats was reduced by 4, and in 1963 the #1147 was rebuilt to a 68 seat coach with the round end removed. In 1970, the #1147 was repainted to Cascade Green as BN #6800.
