Flipping through an old issue of TRAINS, I came across an interesting photo. On page 28 of the June 1997 issue, it shows the Cardinal with an F40 diesel, Heritage baggage, and four Superliners. Although I can't tell for sure it appears to have two coaches, a lounge, and a sleeper. This past summer I rode the Cardinal and it had two Genesis diesels, two heritage baggage cars, a transition sleeper, two regular sleepers, a diner, a lounge, and three coaches. On the return trip, there were two more coaches that were chartered by a group of teachers going west on a research trip. Now, I will grant that I rode the train in July and the TRAINS photo shows a Feguary consist, but surely that lenght difference can't be attributed to seasonal change alone, can it? Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions on this one guys?
