It's quite interesting that UP 5714 was trailing UP Steam back in 1966. That same car is now named "Golden State Limited" and still trails UP Steam as the supply car for the concessions.

Nathan, what's interesting to me is that there are sleepers on this train. I don't recall the trips of 1966 at the moment but it apparently wasn't altogether a fan trip. The Golden State Limited car used to be the Pony Express, before Nystrom's reletter. I have heard that there is another car now named the Pony Express but I haven't seen it. My recollection is that the 5714 was used on a variety of special trains, including Sun Valley ski trains.
