I caught the westbound California Zephyr this evening east of Agency, Iowa with five private cars on the end.  I've seen these five a few times before.  I think this is part of an annual trip.

They are enroute to Montana. It's an annual trip over Montana rail link. Not an Amtrak train over MRL either. It's pulled by an MRL diesel. So someone who is high up at MRL or knows someone. I'm going to lean on knows someone because the cars are based in Orange park, FL and MRL has a great passenger consist.

These five are now heading east on Amtrak #6(12).  The train was three and a half hours late at Agency, Iowa.
