I caught the westbound California Zephyr yesterday running over an hour and a half late at Agency, Iowa.  The private cars Pacific Sands and Tioga Pass were on the end.  They are returning to Los Angeles after participating in the Joliet Rocket with Nickel Plate Road 765.

Tioga pass has some new mattress too. I spent the 18-19th sleeping on the car. Also on board was a railroad CEO from NC
