    I caught the westbound California Zephyr as it went through Agency, Iowa this evening with the Iowa Pacific Big Dome Summit View on the end. I've been told this car is going to Denver. Also, the third sleeping car is the Edward L. Ullman.

    Car is bound for the San Luis and Rio Grande. As with many PVs they are finding service in tourist service thanks to Anderson and Gardner’s restrictions. Of course though IPH cars generally when not in use spend time on their tourist lines.

    Thanx! It's always interesting to see the "Edward L. Ullman". It's a well-deserved tribute. If a reader here has a copy of Goode's School Atlas that includes a rail map of the U.S. it's likely credited to Ullman. He was an active board member; I met him when he accompanied Amtrak President Paul Reistrup on a train trip between Portland and Seattle. They were up in the dome car, taking in everything with great interest.
