Zephyr Route intends to operate future journeys with authentic former Burlington Route cars which were part of its Zephyr trains. While these cars are being refurbished, Zephyr Route has selected some of the best refurbished cars for current journeys.

Silver Quail was built to be a quality hotel on wheels for longer, overnight travel. There are eleven double rooms with lower and upper single beds for nighttime. Beds fold away to create sofa seating for daytime use. Each room has a sink and toilet room. Shower service is available on a scheduled use basis. The Budd Company built Silver Quail for Burlington Route's famed California Zephyr.
