Not so simple as it might seem. It has long been a dream to get a dome car for IRM. This is basically the car body and needs work to the exterior and interior. That includes finding and buying a pair of the correct trucks. So consider it a "PROJECT" and I doubt it would be able to run in train service anytime in 2011. Bob Kutella

I saw the "Silver Pony" pass thru Berwyn, Ill., this morning at 09.35 am. It was the second car on a freight heading into the Cicero yard as best as I could tell. This sighting was at Oak park ave. and the Burlington tracks. Just thought you would like to know.

Thanks for the update John. The excitement builds! For those not familiar with the system used for comments here, they are all reviewed as occasional spam creeps its way in. So one of us must read and release the comment. It does not mean it is unimportant or not valued, but there can be a time lag between your sending it and then seeing it up on the screen. Bob Kutella

I saw this car 'Silver Pony' leaving the Phoenix area and didn't realize until later what I had seen. Then too late to get a photo. Dumb me! Glad it is safe now.
