There are a lot of nice cars that have been restored and a lot of "work in progress" units in the wings. This car and I go way back. The first time I ever visited the Austin Steam Train Association and rode the Hill Country Flyer in 1993, my dad and I rode on it. The owner of the car, the late Bert Dockall was aboard as car host and my dad and he hit it off real well. This was the power on the train that day. It has been out of service for a long time now but one day they hope to have it back running again.
