Remarks & Notes 
In the sunset, Amtrak #69 brings up "Babbling Brook" on the rear. The Babbling Brook was built for the New York Central Railroad in 1949. Having problems competing with inexpensive and faster air travel, the heyday for passenger rail travel in the U.S. was ending, and the car was sold to Canadian Pacific Railroad in 1957. Passenger jets and still cheaper air travel finally caught up to Babbling Brook, and, in 1969, the car was sold to the Quebec Mining Company, where it was used as the official car for executives. Since 1986 the car has been in private ownership, available for rental. Sleeping for 8, with buffet, observation lounge, full service kitchen, shower, and separate water and fuel tanks.
