The dome section for sure.
I wonder if we will see this car in service next year or if they will instead spend a year or two remoding the inside to meet their desire/needs. I'm also curious what they will name this car.

Hard to believe it will take more than a couple of months to get a currently Amtrak certified car running on CSRX. Mechanical is not going to be the issue.

I just realized the whole car is for dining including the dome seating. I thought only a portion of the car was for dinning. Now I'm really intrigued by this addition.

Figure on the local health Dept to inspect the kitchen and require some changes to be done.

None of the first class cars on the notch train have windows that open, only in coach seating the windows open. On the valley train all windows can open in first class and coach.

So, with the 16+ inches of snow dumbed in the mountains yesterday, will we be seeing another plow extra to Hazen's to keep the line open for the dome car delivery?

They're running 4266 solo to Hazen's?

No, looks like 573 leading west, based on a picture of them passing Frankenstein trestle within the last 10 minutes.

How can we see the pictures?

They're on a private Instagram page, all taken in the area of the Notch itself. Happen to work with his father, how I got heads ups on both of these plow jobs.

And speaking of dome car Silver Splendor, do we know its location as of Thursday 11/29/18? Someplace on Pan Am perhaps?
