Isn't this car the sole survivor of its type?  Was this car set aside/retired in Paris, Illinois for years?

"That is the poultry car that is at the Transportation Museum in St Louis. The only known poultry car to still exist. It was a Poultry Palace Car. The car is now sitting in the back of a building, almost inaccessible with no known plans to restore. This is a nice set of photos, apparently taken when the car was still outside."
