None of that information sounds reliable to me.
Completely agree. Railroaders and railfans both have their own gossip mill, and sometimes
the guff that comes out of either is stratospherically wrong.
Until we see an official note about diners for sale or order modification, I'm not going to believe much. There is basically no buyer for the diners and if there were to be a sale, it would be advertised clearly. A federal gov't entity cannot just backdoor diners they "don't like" to GCRY or ARR. There is a very clear sale process. Remember the recent disposal of old cars and power, including Ocean View? We all heard about it.
Also, a cancellation of the last four dorms would be something that goes on paper pretty clearly as well. Remember when they shifted a few cars from sleeper to dorms (was it full bags to dorms?) a few years ago? We all knew about it very well.
