Subject: [DRGW] [SG] Foreign Cars on the Prospector (trains 7/8)

So, I was doing some photo research on the P-S streamliner cars, and
noticed something I hadn't seen before. Right there on the cover of the
Prospector, Vol. 5 No. 3, is a photo of the namesake train curving
through Rainbow Cut. Yes, I had noticed the *photo* before... What I
hadn't seen was the fact that the last car on the train was a Union
Pacific car. I'm going to speculate that it's a sleeper, although the
photo angle makes it a little hard to tell for sure. The caption
identifies the date as 9/26/66.

So, I was aware that foreign cars often showed up on the CZ, but somehow
I have missed the memo that the Prospector entertained such visitors.
Was this a common occurrence? Bob Webber or anybody know the answer to
that one?
