Pullman Rail Journeys equipment questions
Author: Amtrak288

Can anyone here tell me the car histories of their cars "Belleville" and "Adirondack Club"?  I got photos of these 2 cars last November when I was on my big trip and will include pix of them in my travelogue.  Any info on the cars would be appreciated. Thanks...

BELLEVILLE was an original name for an IC 11 bedroom Sleeper built by PS Plan 4168-A - Not sure which car the CLUB was.  Or that BELLEVILLE is that same car or, as they like IC,that's the name they used.

SILVER QUAIL was a CZ 6-5 car, originally.   Last I had heard, it was an American Rail Excursions car.  but then, Ed has been picking up a lot of equipment lately!   The car is certainly not the original car of that name (BELLEVILLE) as it is an obvious Budd-built car, and surprisingly, they didn't modify the lower sheething to be flat/slab sided.

The SILVER THRUSH, sister to SILVER QUAIL, is currently listed for sale on www.railswap.org.

Pullman Rail Journeys/Iowa Pacific's Belleville is indeed the former CZ/CB&Q 6-5 Silver Quail.  Technically the Silver Quail still is a 6-5 though it has been refered to as an 11-bedroom car since Amtrak days.

I rode it a year and a half or so NOL-CHI, apparently right after IP bought it. Was still in silver CBQ then, I understand now it's been painted/wrapped in the IPH colors. Was a great trip, really enjoyed it.
