Built in 1948 by Pullman-Standard as a 14 roomette, 4 bedroom sleeper for the St. Louis-San Francisco RR’s crack streamliner The Texas Special. It was sold to the CN in 1965 and was in regular service on the Super-Continental. Retired in 1982 and purchased by High Iron and completely rebuilt and modernized. The Caritas began its new life as the premier “rare mileage car” in November, 1984.
