Sorry, I only caught a glimpse from my house north of Taylor.  Two (or three) dark colored cars were attached to the back of #22, next stop is Temple.  Close to being on-time.  Anyone want to get a photo/video  between here and Ft Worth/Dallas?   :)


Amtrak Routes Taken

Amtrak Cascades, California Zephyr, Coast Starlight, Crescent, Empire Builder, Heartland Flyer, Pacific Surfliner, San Joachin, Southwest Chief, Sunset Limited, Texas Eagle

Iowa Pacific cars are either painted in a livery close to their original owner or in a dark brown and orange livery, what kind of cars were they?

ex New York Central cars were grey and black, PRR cars were painted in a darkish brown, same with Norfolk and Western cars. They could have been ex Missouri Pacific cars, since the TE used to be MoPac, albeit a near completely different train then

There are no MoPac cars that are certified at the moment to my knowledge. Some did survive though. He probably saw Charter Wire's two cars which are painted New York Central gray.
