I got a few pictures the other day of a side of railroading you don't get to see often. Don't know if there are any model railroaders out there who model modern business cars, but I've included some interior shots.

This batch are from a modern theater car. The back part is theater style seating facing backwards out a large window.

These are from a dome dining car. There's a small 'Gold Room' under the dome with two tables. These were setup with very nice desserts it looks like.

Thanks for posting. I have often wondered what the view looked like out the garage back door of a theater car. Are you at liberty to identify the cars and the railroad?

They're UP's Idaho, City of Portland, and Challenger.
Thanks. A few times in the mid-50's to early 60's my family and I rode the UP's "Cities" trains between Portland and the Midwest. Most of my time was spent in the Vista Dome. I vaguely remember eating dinner once in the Vista Dome diner.
