Hello Keviv K and others. Actually there are 3 ex C&NW/DB&W coaches still around. The 6/20 is at CRRM but is more commenly known as the " Pullman" and is the first carbody on the ground past the 3 way. It was purchased by CRRM in 4/64 from the D&RGW and currently houses nicer lumber. It is lettered as 0250. The Friends of CATS in Colorado Springs are doing a excellent intensive restoration on the 9/21 in is in the pic I posted previously on the NGDF. It was purchased by the friends in 1994. Both of these cars were built as D&RG tourist sleepers built by Pullman before going to the C&NW/DB&W. There is a Barney & Smith carbody, # unknown on a youth camp near Jasper Colorado. A search on NGDF can tell more about that carbody. Personaly I think the Barney & Smith car could use a good home in a museum, being more rare. After service on the C&NW/DB&W all 3 cars were purchased by Morse Bros. before going to Western Union. In 1933 all three cars were "donated" to the D&RGW becoming 0250-0253.
Hope this helps
Jeff Ramsey

Coach 9/21 is currently being restored by the Friends of COS in Colorado Springs.
