Surprises in SP Alamo
"The Alamo" business car has many surprises hidden away in the depths of its interior. In one of the four staterooms, in a closet, a paper bag was found with a stack of kitchen towels. These towels are marked SOUTHERN PACIFIC and PULLMAN. Most of the towels are in mint condition but only yellowed from years of storage.
