This car really hasn't fared any better, as it was gutted by VIA Rail 25+ years ago to be made into a Skyline car (without a vestibule).  Minimal work was done before those projects were terminated.  The gutted shell still exists under private ownership at Gateway, but there's really nothing left of the original fabric.
