In the Back Forty...

Underneath the grime and graffiti, this is former Milwaukee Road "Super Dome" lounge #58. One of only 11 full-length domes built by Pullman-Standard, the 58 and its sisters served primarily in the "Hiawatha" fleet, although they appeared from time to time on other MILW runs, and even made some trips on Union Pacific trains such as the "City of Denver".

The 58 remained in MILW service right up to the creation of Amtrak, then spent several years on the Amtrak roster. It's shown here, in its not-so-neat state, in the "back forty" storage area at the American Orient Express shop in Western Junction, Wash.

The car remained at Western Junction after AOE moved out, and was scrapped there in November 2009.
