If you are interested in the train consist of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus red and blue units, the late Harold Driscoll had a complete roster of the 1998 and 1999 circus trains on his web site.  (please see the advisory box below) His site contains a complete roster of RBBB cars, the consist of the 1998 Blue Unit, the 1999 Red Unit, a history of each car, the year each car was constructed, the builder of each car and the year that RBBB acquired each car.  By following these links, you will be taken to his web site and can find photos of each car of the 1999 Red Unit consist and the passenger and animal cars of the 1998 Blue Unit consist.  You can visit his site at

Please note the following advisory posted by the Hostmaster.

" Hostmaster Note: We regret to inform Chicago Rail Photographs site visitors that Harold Driscoll passed away in June of 2000. His friendship, knowledge, and insight will be missed by many.

As a memorial to Harold this site will remain online. As Harold kept many of his images on some of his other sites many larger views are not available as those sites have apparently discontinued service. Also, please note that any email sent to Harold will NOT be answered as his email account apparently no longer exists."


In July, 2000, I came upon the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus train coaches parked on a siding in Cashion, AZ.  Here are some of the photographs I managed to get.
