The Ben Halliday

From: "Larry Mullaly"

I have a passenger car question. The SP Assistant Superintendent's Journal for March 16, 1873 contains the entry:

Excursion engine No. 4 [Comanche] with one coach, the Ben Halliday, a wedding party to San Jose.

My interpretation is that SP No. 4, Comanche, was hired out to bring a one car train from San Francisco to San Jose. Can anyone provide additional information about this car? ...
