    My sons have a modern Amtrak Coast Starlight and this will be perfect to update their train to current times!

    Ditto. Been waiting for this one! Although I still run the Pacific Parlour Car with my Coast Starlight...it's just not the Starlight without it!

    I think they just discontinued the PPC last Feb (going from memory) so there's at least a few years where you can run both! These new Viewliner II baggage cars look like they started showing up in 2014.
    Here's a link to some shots of them:
