Repainted Passenger Car "Pontchartrain Club" in Horicon, Wisconsin (editor's title)

Newly-repainted private passenger car "Ponchartrain Club" basking in the sun outside the Wisconsin & Southern Railroad paint shop in Horicon, Wisconsin, on May 8, 2012. The Pullman Company built the car in 1917 as a coach for the Illinois, which then converted it to round-end observation car "Mark Beaubien" in 1947 for service on its Chicago-St. Louis Daylight passenger train. It was rebuilt again in 1988 as the private car "Eaton," and it is now part of a matching set repainted at Horicon in Illinois Central-inspired colors for Iowa Pacific's passenger operations.
