SILVER VIEW RESTORATION

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.

Additional work has continued on the lights, including original style toggle switches and translucent glass. 

Various new wiring components are being installed for electrical modernization behind the vintage look that they will have. Shown here are the near finished results of lots of hard work to restore them for the viewing enjoyment of our future passengers.
