The window pattern would seem to indicate that the SC-2 is identical
to the SC-1. However, during my tour of the facility,
we were unable to get inside the SC-2, so I have no photos of the interior.
other cars, the SC-2 was built for a previous project (probably the
Marlboro Unlimited) and has never been used. At present, I am told that
the interior is completely blank. But as stated previously, I would
expect that in a finished state, the car would be identical in layout
to the SC-1.
is possible that the car may see service on the Golden Eagle in the
future, it is not presently being used for any purpose that I am aware
of. Like the other shop cars, the SC-2 is sans trucks, drawbars, electrical
system and under car appliances.
about the shop domes is that their unfinished exteriors afford a very
interesting look at the side structure of the cars. I am told that it
pretty thoroughly represents the construction of all the ultradome cars.
Shades of the side structure can be seen by looking at the weld and
finish marks on the exterior skin in the photos of Rocky Mountaineer
9523 taken during construction.
