The 1950 St Louis Car MUs did make it to PC. They became the 1000
series MUs. I rode in the cab of one sometime around 1973 or 1974.
Not sure when they were retired, but at least one made it to MTA blue
& silver. It was refurbished and used as a private car. A group paid
the railroad extra money to run the car on particular trains, the
general public was not allowed in.
The 1962 cars became the 1100 series cars. Many survive today, though
heavily rebuilt. I understand they are in permanent sets, and the
traps are welded shut.
