OK, here's a shot w/ the sides of both cars-

I'd venture to guess that these were SP gallery cars at one time, used in commute service before Amtrak/Cal-Train, ect. took over. I think they were called gallery cars by SP, please correct me if I'm wrong. I could be mistaken on the car origins, though...maybe I'll see if I can find some photos of SP cars back in the day.
It's the only car on the roster right now.....I'll do some more digging......

Don't reconize it.
I'm going to say inconclusive. Metra didn't have tail lights (and still doesn't) on their coaches. Only the cab cars. However, they could be old Rock Island (I'm guessing they're old SP cars). The vents over the doors just don't look like anything that was in the Metra fleet, at least since the nineties. A reporting mark might be real helpful in getting to the bottom of this.
Matt, there's 16 windows on the sides of these cars. So are they ex-Metra?
My dad says that NCRA used them one summer, and he seems to think we took video of them. They had them in Eureka, not sure what they were doing w/ them, as this was a long time ago!
