Silver Lariat is so well-known for dependable operation, fine food, and quality accommodations that it is frequently chartered by major railroads for their own business trains. Silver Lariat was built by the Budd Company in 1948 for the famous California Zephyr train which operated between Chicago and San Francisco. After Amtrak service from 1971-1985, the present owners completely overhauled Silver Lariat mechanically, and renovated the interior. The car features an observation dome seating 24, for viewing the passing scenery, complete with lounge tables. Very comfortable reclining coach seats on the main level seat 44, with pillows and blankets available for overnights. Silver Lariat can carry 68 day passengers and 40 overnight. Dining tables are available on the lower level. The galley provides beverage and full gourmet multi-course dining service. The car is Amtrak-compatible, including push-pull service. Silver Lariat has an on-board diesel generator, TV/VCR, including public address, CD player, and radio tuner.
