The Northern Pacific Railway bought one, 55′, 40 passenger, 30 ton, McKeen Car Numbered “A-1.” ┬áThis motor car was built in 1909, and a fire destroyed car, and was then scrapped some time between 1918 to 1922.

Although this is a newspaper article from Arizona for the Maricopa and Phoenix Railroad McKeen Motor Cars, this is a photograph of the Northern Pacific A-1 McKeen Car along with an interior shot of Union Pacific M-20.
