PC: Pennsy Kitchen/Table Car Diner Sets

Did any of the PRR dining car pairs make it to PC service, and if so did
Amtrak run any?

I visited the Art Train today, and two of the exhibit cars were one of
these sets. It's in Shelbyville, Tennessee and will be heading to Athens,
Georgia shortly.

For those who haven't seen these, the set was an attempt to address the
capacity problem of dining cars. These cars operated in a two car set.
The kitchen was in one car and the other car was a table car. Since these
cars were designed to always operate together the doorway between the
cars was extra-wide to aid the servers.
