Amtrak #6 with Puget Sound
Author: Agent

I caught the eastbound California Zephyr that's due in Chicago later today as it passed Agency, Iowa.  The private dome car Puget Sound was riding on the end.

1) AMTK 203 and 161 lead Amtrak #6(10) past Agency with a rain storm off in the distance.

2) The Budd-built Puget Sound.

3) A going away shot.

Nice shots, glad Puget Sound is where all Private Cars should be, on the rear!

The view....through all the exhaust, is, I think, the only benefit to riding up front.  Yes, I know, what are domes FOR anyway?

Seth- One of the three partners did pass in September and he is very much missed. As many times as you've been on the cars I would think you'd try for a little more accuracy in a public forum. The Puget Sound is still an active car and will remain so into the foreseeable future.

I am aware the Puget Sound is still running, I passed you just outside Galesburg Wednesday evening onboard another dome car. Hopefully the Sierra Hotel finds a nice home. 

Seth-
