Zephyr Route is currently in a multi-year project to restore the historic Silver View dome rail car.

SILVER VIEW was built by the Budd Company in 1947 for The Burlington Route Vista Dome Twin Cities Zephyrs.

It provided first class parlor car service, and was the signature car to one of the most handsome trains ever built. 

When restored, SILVER VIEW will become ZEPHYR ROUTE premier railcar service for current and future generations who seek high quality rail travel.
