I have some photos of the former serving bar areas of the Buffet/Cafeteria cars that are in PV service. When I get into my archives in a few minutes I'll post some pictures.

It's still there too. It's a little project of mine to get it working. I need to figure out where in the box it is.

Huh.  Until today I had not realized that Le Pub was a Heritage car (I had somehow presumed that they just did something funny with an Amfleet).


Amtrak mileage to date: Somewhere between 120,000 and 150,000 miles...I /really/ need to run all of my trips through a calculator sometime.

...and no, I am not /that/ Anderson...;-)

Until late in its life the Montrealer did not have any Amfleets in its consist.

What little good they did when my boss smoked up the kitchen cooking.
