Chris noticed that the Southwest
Chief had a private car on the end, so we walked down to the
multi-level parking garage and were lucky that the owner, Patrick
Henry, was on the platform on the back of his two beautifully restored,
former UP cars.
Noticing that we were all taking photos, Patrick asked that we
send the photos to him and he would send us a nice goodie bag.
This page is a result of that conversation.
After returning home that evening, I searched for
information about the cars, Patrick Henry and found this excellent
website about the cars: http://www.phcp.com/the-train/
and this excellent interview with the owner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3rbLhbeYjw.
