#800698 PACIFIC SUNSET
Title:  #800698 PACIFIC SUNSET
Description:  Built in 1950 by Budd in Lot #9660-039 to Plan #9522 as UP 10RM-6DB sleeper PACIFIC RANGE, 1 of 50 PACIFIC-series cars built in that Lot, which was ordered in February 1948; cars were delivered between December 1949 and June 1950. Besides PACIFIC EMPIRE, which was wrecked in 1951, the other 49 cars were assigned #14xx-series numbers in 1969, the PACIFIC RANGE was assigned #1434, which was applied in October 1969. 5 cars were sold to the Milwaukee Road in 1969, 1 car was retained by UP, and the other 43 cars were sold to Amtrak in 1971 as #2600-#2642, PACIFIC RANGE as #2627. Besides 3 which were wrecked during Amtraks first decade, the remaining 40 cars were converted to HEP in 3 batches, the 2nd group of 15 cars were converted in 1979-1980, including PACIFIC RANGE, which was converted to HEP #2883 in July 1979. 1 of the 3 cars wrecked during the first decade was #1443/#2636 PACIFIC SUNSET (1st), and as a result, when #1434/#2627 was converted to HEP #2883, the name was changed from PACIFIC RANGE to PACIFIC SUNSET (2nd). The #2883 was sold in 1995 to private ownership.
