The last mail made me think of another question. Did PC own any Dome Cars,

Colors years ago to go with their other sets, but it made me wonder if
there ever actually was one.
And as for those E&B Coaches, those are neat. However, I agree with you
about those trucks. Why they would package the trucks in kit form is

I believe that the entire Athearn streamlined line of cars is based on ATSF
prototypes built by Pullman-Standard, not Budd.
The Athearn dome car is definitely a Pullman-Standard prototype, as P-S
domes didn't "have a curve in sight". Domes from Budd and ACF utilized
curved glass, while P-S domes were comprised of all flat glass panels.
