The two Patrick Henry Creative Promotions private cars, Pullman Evelyn A. Henry and dome car Warren R. Henry, are on the end of the westbound California Zephyr that left Chicago today.  I caught this Amtrak #5, which also has a ski train wrap ad, at Agency, Iowa.

Great catch, as always. I guess Patrick Henry made Anderson an offer he couldn’t refuse!
I’ve never been able to distinguish Superliner I and II from each other. Which kind were those cars?

No need for a special deal if those cars are going from Chicago to Emeryville.  Problems incur if there is switching at places along the line.

In order, Superliner II - Superliner II - Superliner I - Superliner I - Superliner I - Superliner II - Superliner I - Superliner I - Superliner I

Thanks for the video. Wow. I’d imagined the difference was more pronounced than a simple difference in truck design.

I imagine there are more differences, but the trucks are the most notable.
