In 2019 the Carson & Colorado aquired three cars from the Silverwood Amusement park in Northern Idaho. The cars #1C, #12, and #20 had been at the park since 1986 when they had been purchased from the Harrah estate. Bill Harrah had purchased them from the SP in 1960 during the railroads abandonment.
In October 2019 car #1C was trucked to Independence. Cars #12 and 20 were given to the Sumpter Valley Railroad and have been moved to Oregon for restoration.
