The other side is painted a dark/olive green. (will look for a picture).  We  have nothing to do with the group in Willits.  This car is going to be part of our planned tourist train around Humboldt Bay.  We have a 1917 Diner, a parlor car and 4 SP commute coaches.

Tell us  Somoa  about this bagged car under wraps.  How is it painted? Color Scheme? Will it be moved to Willits?  Note  Will it and Willits? clever or cleaver?  Pass me the meat, Cleaver as the butcher said to Eldrege Cleaver formerly and formally of the Black Panthers. Not the paint black which may be part of the lack of color on far side of bagged car.

For most of those who read this, The Black Panthers were a group of black activists in the late 1960's and 1970's who wanted to stop police harrassment by harrassing the fuzz or in BP terminology Pigs.

Eldrege was spokesman for the BP and wrote book " Soul on Ice" before going to prison.

This is located at the THA shops in Samoa Ca. Humboldt Co.  The car is the Redwood, once a private car for NWP executives.  The other side is painted

i'd offer my condolences but the bagged item on my screen looks more to be a vintage r.r. coach.

I have no idea where the restoration of that old Greyhound bus is taking place.  What weight of tarp is being used to avoid tears caused by either wind or one's beloved passing away.

is this @ the restoration operation on the S side of the Skunk/ CNRR RoW about a mile W of the NWPRR RoW?

An AAPRCO friend of mine says the most challenging and expensive portion of the restoration of these old cars is the rennovation of roofs.

Looks like a bagged car to me. Bag should or shroud should extend over and under the car. Then it would truly be a baged age car.
