I caught the westbound California Zephyr this evening at Agency, Iowa with three cars from Iowa Pacific.  They were the sleeping car Baton Rouge, full dome Sky View, and the sleeper Belleville.  Looks like they are on a Best of the West trip from Uncommon Journeys.

Nice trip...looked at their brochure....reminiscent of the old "Four Winds Private Train" tours of the '60's and '70's...although prior to Amtrak, there was a lot more of the tour done by train, then is currently possible...

They dine in the dome car...its lower level contains a full galley...not sure if they serve down there, or waiters bring it to a portion of the dome for meals...
