Although Pullman built four of these cars for the Santa Fe, they had a total of five in the Vista series, with the last, Vista Club, having been built by American Car & Foundry. That singular ACF vehicle differed from its P-S mates by having slightly taller windows, which would match those of the Palm-series 10-6 sleeper ahead of the observation in John's photo. ACF also built some of the Regal series 4-4-2 sleepers for Santa Fe, and they too had the taller window height when compared to the P-S built cars in that class. Several 4-4-2 sleepers operating in today's BNSF executive train are ACF-built Regal cars.
