In 1956 the IC modified two cabooses 9791 and 9792 for the AEC in
their Centralia shops. They were returned to the railroad and the
modifications removed in 1960 and the cabooses were placed back
I have no other information on what the modifications were.

There were several
cars, basically modified baggage cars, used by several
railroads. They ran in regularly scheduled passenger trains.
For example MILW 1046 (if I remember correctly) was a 70ft
heavyweight express car that ran weekly between Oak Ridge TN
to Hanford WA with radioactive material. Normally ran in "The
Columbian", Tr. 17/18 from Chicago and cut out to go down the
branch line to Hanford reservation.
In 1961 L&N had four surplus 10-3 sleeping cars modified
to baggage dorms or use by Atomic Energy Commission which were
renumbered 1650-1653. Only indication of use was "Return to
Oak Ridge in small letters.
And there was also SCL 666 which ran Savannah to Rocky Flats
