Israelite House of David - Enclosed Passenger Car

         

To honor founders Mary and Benjamin, colony members constructed an enclosed passenger car for their privacy and protection from the elements when riding on the trains.  This car was rarely used and only in the early years.  Because of the narrow gauge tracks and the heavy superstructure of this car it was unstable and could only be run on the curves at slow speed.  An interesting feature of this image is a rare glimpse just above the front of the locomotive of the park dance pavilion that would later become a roundhouse.
