Canadian National @ Sacramento, CA.
The St. Hyacinthe is typical of all-steel Pullman type sleeping cars of the heavyweight era, the period between 1907 and the mid-1930s. Canadian National Railways Sleeping Car No. 1683 was delivered in 1929 by Canadian Car & Foundry Company of Montreal. It was one of fifteen sleepers built to a standard Pullman design with ten open sections, one drawing room, and one compartment. These cars received CN road numbers between 1674 and 1688 and were named for Canadian cities beginning with the letter "S."
