Editor's Note: The RBBB car type code of 'coach' includes a variety of passenger cars, most of which are sleeping cars. Some baggage cars have the type code of 'coach,' while others are 'baggage.' The type code of 'stock' indicates the large animal cars, typically four such cars per unit. The type code of 'flat' includes flat cars, container cars, and multi-level autorack cars. -had, December 1999.

Editor's Note: RBBB runs two circus trains, the Red Unit and the Blue Unit. They alternate routes each year, have different acts, and carry acts that are booked for a two-year cycle. A special thanks from your host to Jack Deasy of Alexandria (Virginia) for bringing this information to my attention and providing a copy of the list. -had, December 1999.
