Amtrak Inspection Car - American View

I had an old Con-Cor Viewliner sleeper that I was not using, and I decided to try converting it to Amtrak's Inspection car - the American View.  Here's what I came up with.

An old Rivarossi dome car furnished the theater seats at the rear of the car, the body was painted aluminum and new decals were applied.

Haven't done much scratch building/modification on N Gauge equipment. Under close magnification, it shows some rough spots. But it certainly passes the 2-foot test! I think it came out pretty nice.

Thanks,
Bart
