    I caught the eastbound California Zephyr that's due into Chicago later today at Agency, Iowa with the Horizon dinette CDTX 53509 Pacific Horizon as the first car.  This Horizon is usually on a single-level set of the San Joaquins.

    Interesting. I'm wondering if it wasn't needed out here? I have only ever seen two single deck trains running around and there were 3 supposedly.

    Periodically, the leased single level cars go East for service. Since they go on a Superliner equipped train, they are very noticeable.
