June of 1972 saw 6 Dome Coaches sent to Auto Train including 7000, 7001, 7002, 7003, 7005, 7007, and 7009.
7004 and 7008 went to the Alaska Railroad in May, 1972.
In 1958, five more Dome Coaches were ordered by the UP, this time from Pullman Standard. They were numbered 7011-7015 and were assigned to the City of St. Louis. Wabash also ordered a single Dome Coach, No. 203, for the same service, bringing the total to 6 cars assigned to the CoStL. The Wabash car was painted in UP’s yellow and gray and had Wabash lettering. Kato released a model of this car, but the fonts didn’t translate correctly from the artwork. Later in life this sixth Dome Coach received Norfolk And Western lettering as the N&W took over the Wabash (1964). Following that it became Southern 1613 and eventually QNS&L 13510.
