Hi All, For some time there has been a car from the Federal Railroad Administion in the Caltrain City Yard for some time now. Has anyone seen it when they take Caltrain?

Sorry I don't know where to post this. Being that it's in the caltrain yard. I posted it here.

I believe Caltrain bought former FRA geometry car T-10, a Budd SPV car.

Unfortunatly it's the last of its kind, a Budd Build Self Propelled Vehicle (SPV). a few are at Museums in North East and 11 are at Shoreline East in CT as coaches.
