The Pullman Standard dome car in tuscan red sold by AHM is mostly a figment
of their imagination. N&W did briefly own a smooth side dome car, #1602,
which was an ex Wabash car acquired with that line in 1964. This car was
never in red, though it did get painted in the "Pevler" dark blue before it
was sold to the Southern where it was assigned to the Asheville train. The
other dome cars were Budd lightweights, also ex Wabash. These were
stainless steel with blue letterboards and were used in the 1969 upgrading
of the "Pocahontas". I don't think any of the domes ever ran on the
"Arrow", at least not on any regular basis. Dan.
