BB 301 or "Moo 1" is an open air car on the excurtion train
Title:  BB 301 or "Moo 1" is an open air car on the excurtion train
Description:  While working as a car host on the 301 it was my job to tell people not to lean over the side. When I told a man not to lean over he said "cattle gates can hold a cow but not me?!" Obviously he was unaware that the car was not designed for cattle, but I still think he was just saying that to be rude. I replied, "You're damn right, you're twice the size of an average cow!"
