San Marino was heading back east on Amtrak #6(15) to Chicago today. I caught this California Zephyr at Ottumwa, Iowa. The train also happened to have the Big Game Train unit, AMTK 50, as its second engine.

That car looks pretty old. Approximately when was it built?

1916....

Thanks. That sure is old.

 

102 years....those old 12 wheeled 'battleships' could withstand a direct hit from a hurricane, no problem... :)

It rode with Capital Limited #30 last night from Chicago. Don't know how far it went since I got off Pittsburgh this am.

If the current PV rules were followed it went all the way to Washington.

The car lives in Candor, NC so if I was a betting person I would say expect it on 79
