Thanks for posting the most excellent video.  As a Seaboard Coast Line and Southern Railway passenger fireman, it was a dream to see a Crescent "Royal" observation trailing a Silver Meteor "Sun Lounge".  I thought back to long ago Carolina nights when I saw, rode, or worked both trains.  I nice to finally see the green Crescent tail sign glowing in the night.

Nice cars - they are clearly good for at least 110MPH, although the extra weight probably did affect acceleration somewhat.

Yes, these cars our for our annual History Train that Tour group planners does every year. We will be on Train #3 on Tuesday to head to Albuquerque for the week. We will be also taking in the balloon Fiesta while we're there. We have many days of sightseeing planned, including going to Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Belen.

Let me know if your interested in riding next year on our trip. We will be going Eastward and will have a sleeper car also. All those great meals on board and beverages and the wonderful sightseeing.
