In his book about Williamson, Vern French suggests they were scrapped in
1987. I don't know what his source of this information is, but it sounds
highly plausible to me, sadly.

I saw that issue and remember the photo. This has also been documented in
several publications including RPC Publication's "Streamliner Cars -- Vol.
1 Pullman Standard." The Saudi railroad also acquired Burlington Budd
diner - lounge observation cars after they were retired as well as a number of
other cars... too numerous to list at this time.

I hate getting old... Over the years I have learned a lot of things, but I
just can't remember much of it anymore.
