Texas Eagle with ex-Santa Fe dome Sky View Ltl Rock
Author: arkansasrailroader

Early Friday morning, November 16, 2012 around 3 a.m. , Amtrak's southbound Texas Eagle No. 21 arrived at Union Station in Little Rock, Arkansas with former Santa Fe dome/lounge car "Sky View" on the rear. The car's number was 800966, and currently is lettered for Iowa Pacific. It was headed to San Antonio for transfer to the Texas State Railroad near Palestine, Texas for their annual Polar Express Christmas train.

Nice pictures as always! Did #21 have it's usual seven Superliners? Your linked pictures show just one P42DC, which has previously been said to limit the Eagle to seven cars total.

I believe Iowa Pacific is now operating the Texas State RR.

No idea if htis is of interest but it's on the tail end of today's #14, bound for Oakland. Looks like one guy in it, working on the car. Sure is pretty with all the stainless recently prushed. Anybody know what it'll be used for?
