WP 813         
Delivered to Western Pacific as WP 813 Silver Palace in May 1948, this dome would join Auto Train as AUT 462 in June 1970 until purchased by Ed Braun at auction in December 1981 after the demise of Auto Train. Vista Rail Inc purchased this car in 1988 becoming RATX 800273 then leased to Branson Scenic, White River Scenic (as Calico Rock), RailTex/RailCruise America, Wisconsin Central, and finally purchased by Algoma Central, given a total rebuild becoming AC 800273 Spirit of Superior. In this photo Silver Palace brings up the rear of Amtrak 21 Texas Eagle during her short stint with RailTex.
