"OWRR&N 3500-3516 were built by Oregon Railway & Navigation in 1882 in their shops in The Dalles, Oregon; confirmed by a door threshold plate on OWRR&N 3505, now in Nevada State Railroad Museum at Boulder City, Nevada.

OWRR&N 3505 was donated to Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah; moved to Heber City, Utah, in December 1970 on the first train moved from Provo to Heber, pulled by UP 2-8-0 618; sold to Nevada State Railroad Museum in February 1993 and moved to Boulder City, Nevada in 1994; the car has been restored and was repainted in June 2011 to UP's all-yellow scheme, with red lettering. (The caboose at Boulder has been confirmed as being the former OWRR&N 3505, by lightly sanding the many layers of paint over the end door.)"
