This car was built by the Budd Company at Philadelphia, PA as a 48 seat Diner in March 1947. It was part of an order for new stainless steel passenger cars for system-wide service. It was named "Silver Salver" and was numbered #196, later Burlington Northern #1160 and was used briefly in business train service.
The most common assignment was on the Morning and Afternoon Zephyr trains between Chicago and Minneapolis. Car may have passed through Douglas on CB&Q train #29 and #30, the Omaha to Billings through train in the early 1950s. Car was not selected for service on Amtrak and was retired in 1972.
