    Would anyone please suggest a model of a baggage car that I can use with my minitrix engines and cars, to represent the Santa Fe consist in this picture?
    Needs to have Rapido couplers.

    Thankyou. Now I know what to look for.

    Another question. I did buy a Dome Observation coach in Santa Fe livery,just because I liked the look of it, which possibly was not such a smart move..It appears that Santa Fe never used such a kind of car. Is this true?
    SUGGESTIONS?

    Look at the pic you first posted.
    Seventh car from the end. Looks like this one even still has the skirts.

    Yes, eightyeght, that is definitely a dome car.
    As a matter of fact I have more of them than I can use, given these were seldom ( if ever?) more than one in a consist.
    I was speaking of the dome/ observation car. The kind that combines the dome and observation features. I would be happy to learn that Santa Fe actually did use the kind, but apparently this did not happen.
    I was hoping that some one could tell me the contrary.
    True, it is my layout, but still I would like for it to be prototypical.
