When are they going to get rid of the awful Benzini Bros. title and return the cage to it's "rightful" ownership. That's a bad deal when they whore these wagons up.

Wade, CWM will eventually restore them to their original colors. We have money from 20th Century Fox to repaint them but in the meantime there is a good reason to let the public enjoy seeing how they looked in the "Water for Elephants" movie. There is also a section of bleacher seats in the wagon building which Steve Freese and Heavy Burdick brought home from the California set on display.

The replica of the RBBB Diner wagon will retain the Benzini Bros paint job because it is a replica which was built for the Milwaukee circus parades to prepare meals for the train crew, museum staff and others working on the parade.
