This is why we need dome cars back on Amtrak's LD trains, especially if Amtrak decides to go single level for their western LD equipment to replace the superliners. The superliner domes are okay, but I personally prefer the view from the dome shown from Alaska or Ocean View (which I even went on a few years before its retirement). Aren't some of the dome cars, such as the B&O's Moonlight Dome, low enough to meet clearance on the NEC too, so this way they (or something new like them) can be used on eastern LD trains as well?
