WP's Silver Planet
Author: DTrussell

I've lost track of my all-time favorite passenger car: Western Pacific's California Zephyr Silver Planet obs dome.  Can anyone fill me in and some sources that might be of interest? Last time I heard it was shipped to Mexico? Thanx in advance.

It's on a private Business Park, safe now. I'm afraid after that fire damage, it most likely has suffered drastically and it's structural integrity has been compromised... But at least we're lucky it still exists. I rode in it in 2004, back when it was part of the Expreso de la Independencia set.
