Remarks & Notes 
Tunnel Maintenance Car - A former Southern Pacific flatcar #543960 was converted to maintenance the many tunnels on the Carrizo Gorge Railway. SP 543960 still has friction bearings and most of the wooden deck on top of the steel frame is rotted away. The car sits at the end of Dubbers Spur attached to the five (5) former Chicago Northwestern (CNW) commuter cars that were acquired by Chicago Metra (METX) and later sold as surplus. Goat Canyon trestle is is seven (7) track miles away and Dos Cabazas Station (on the other end of the gorge) is 13.7 track miles eastward. This railroad was embargoed in 2008 and there have been no trains running on this track since that time.
