MRLX 2508 "Pine Cavern" On The Move
Author: NSSpike

Managed to catch this former AMTK car trailing on NS M54 Birmingham / Linwood this afternoon as it passed through Villa Rica Georgia.
Anyone know the destation on this one???

Found this post back 10 years ago on this same car when it was in Waco TX.

The car was somehow altered.  Roomette windows appear normal, but the center bedroom windows are gone.

Perhaps by Amtrak for crew dorm use?

Interesting that it has the name "Pine Cavern" given the fact it is not an ex-Santa Fe car. 
Yup.....it was indeed an ex-UP car that was labeled with a Santa Fe name.
