The Ben Halliday
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? ...
