Built: 1995

Notes: Rocky Mountaineer's Goldleaf service domes comprise the largest single fleet of Colorado Railcar domes presently in service. 9501 was the first car in a fleet that would eventually grow to 12 cars in service or soon to be on RMR's two day rail cruise offering between Vancouver, BC and Jasper, Banff and Calgary, AB. RMR has enlarged its fleet by an average of 1-2 cars per year since purchasing the 9501 in 1995.

The first 10 cars are unique among CRM domes in that they have smaller panes of glass in the dome level. Each pane is matched up to a row of seats, affording the best possible view for all riders. The cars also have the lowest capacity among the domes - 72 dome seats and 36 dining seats, which translates into a slightly roomier fit for each passenger.

9501 is a B car, with an observation platform and small lounge/gift shop supplanting a smaller than normal galley next to the dining area. Being the first car, there are several notable differences in the layout of the 9501 when compared to some of the other cars in the fleet. Chief among them is the seat design, which is slightly different, and the placement of the small service bar several seats back from the end of the car.
