Great Northern Comes North Again. Seen sitting on the Grenada Railroad in Batesville, Mississippi during the early morning hours of December 15, 2019, United Railroad Historical Society of NJ 327 had already had several owners. Built as Great Northern 1137 (ACF, 1950), it was purchased NJ DOT for Central Railroad of New Jersey commuter service, where this class was nicknamed "Green Fleet" (for its color) or "Jersey Builder" (as a takeoff on its Empire Builder service) and renumbered 327. NJ Transit would inherit this car and eventually donate it along with seven others to the URHS, who at this time leased it to Iowa Pacific. During this week it was running on the Bateseville Christmas Train when the train derailed, and further passenger operations were suspended. The car was later sold to U.S. Sugar in Clewiston, Florida, who in turn recently resold it to the Saratoga Corinth & Hudson Railway. SCH announced that this car will be converted to a lounge car, and it is hoped to have it in service for this month's Candy Cane Express Trains.
