    The car does get around! The picture date is 6/8/2009, so that is Monday, two days ago. I saw it in St. Louis Sunday, May 31 under the 18th Street Viaduct while I was going south from Union Station. A quick check of assured me the sighting at that location was nothing special, so that kept me mum (and preserved bandwidth).

    I wonder if it was being set up to go on a trip east on May 31.

    Cimmy went with us on several 1522 trips and was a Godsend. Tony was good to us.

    Tony Marchiando,

    As a private car, Tony Marchiando has taken it on over 1/2 million miles.

    That is a real railfan In September it will be on the AAPRCO convention train .
    not sure if that train will be going through St. Louis with about 20
    private cars of all styles & colors. ; Tony is the 2019 President.

    It's smooth sides were put on when a Canadian railroad who somewhat
    rehabbed the car. I like those...smooth,
    not dented, easily cleaned,
    more modern to attract customers.
    Still the 2 Marchiando brothers had to do a lot more
    rehabbing to
    get it up to date with latest requirements for all high speed rails .

    The smooth sides were not put on when, I believe it was the Canadian National, the car was rehabbed but rather the stainless corrugated side panels were removed and the steel side panels repaired.
