Like most self propelled cars, the 9767 had a varied an interesting career, though perhaps more distinguished than most. In her late years, she was painted a distinctive silver gray and pulled one of the finest riding cars on the system, the Silver Pendulum, between Saint Joseph, Missouri, and Brookfield, where the train connected with the Kansas City Zephyr. When this passenger train was discontinued both the 9767 and the Silver Pendulum were moved to Lincoln, Nebraska to become the Lincoln - Saint Joseph via Wymore Local passenger. Motor failure due to a broken connecting rod did severe damage to the diesel motor and the 9767 was taken out of service in December 1961. The PMC body was set on the ground at Beardstown, Illinois to seve as an engineman's locker room.
