For what it's worth, I caught two trains today (Saturday) with bar cars in the consist. I rode car 8661 (lead car) on the 7:20 am out of New Haven, train 6511 to GCT. On the return, car 8651 was bringing up the rear on train 6548, the 5:37 pm out of GCT. Of course, no bar service on the am train, and the on the pm train the car had a seated load as I passed by, but I'm not sure if drinks were being served.
