American Orient Express and Grand Luxe Express are dead, they have been for several year. Shame, I always wanted to ride.

They probably will end up on the new VIA Churchill Express trains.

Because they are high level cars with no lower level access to adjoining cars, that limits where they could be used. VIA currently doesn't have any high level equipment.

Notice no other ex ATSF high levels of any sort that Amtrak retired about 20 years ago ever made it so much as the BNSF business trains.

If it weren't for the new rules, I'd say one would make a great private car

Those cars are what like 60+ years old? Isn't there a federal rule about car life?

Yes, and as long as the cars pass inspection and meet the standards they were good to go.
How do you think heavyweights are still running?

These railcars are built better than an automobile.

My goodness at some of these replies. Yikes.

It will be interesting indeed since they are high level. I'm prepared to make an offer on one if the price is right.
