EBT Passenger Cars #18 and #29 in Colorado

EBT combine #18 was sold by the EBT in 1954 to the Northwoods Railroad, a planned tourist operation in Michigan that never went into operation. #29 was similarly sold to the Northwoods in 1956. After years of inactivity both were subsequently sold at auction, along with the rest of the Northwoods collection. Both cars were purchased by Don Drawer for use on his planned Sundown and Southern Railroad and were moved to Colorado.
