The famous publicity photo of the "Colorado Eagle" led by new E7's circa 1947 posed in Colorado near Palmer Lake on the Joint Line. The train's accommodations at this time included five sleepers (10 roomettes/6 double-bedrooms [Denver-St. Louis], 6 section/6 roomettes/4 double-bedrooms [Denver - St. Louis], 14 roomettes/4 double-bedrooms [Denver - St. Louis], 6 sections/6 roomettes/4 bedrooms [St. Louis - Los Angeles in conjunction with the "Golden State"], 8 section/1 drawing room/3 double-bedrooms [Wichita - Denver], coaches, grill coach, "Planetarium Dome" coach, and diner-lounge.

 

I have a Coach Yard HO set fabulous model by Sam Tech, it’s an interesting mix of modernized heavyweight to then state of the art Budd domes. Scott, I might be persuaded. Be a legendary project. The porthole windows that were all over the train were the neat things other than that gorgeous paint scheme.
