I created a list of the viewliner diners. I thought it would be helpful to have a separate thread just listing the cars and noting which are in service. I put the words in service by the cars I believe are in service. Please provide corrections and updates In this thread only. There is another thread that is being used for speculation and discussion.

I hope this is taken as a step to help. Moderators, if you see fit you can pin this thread too.

8400 Indianapolis in service (restored Vierwliner I)
68000 Albany
68001 Annapolis, in service
68002 Atlanta, in service
68003 Augusta, in service
68004 Baton Rouge, in service
68005 Boston, in service
68006 Charleston, in service
68007 Columbia, in service
68008 Columbus, in service
68009 Concord

68019 Nashville, in service
68020 Providence
68021 Raleigh, in service

MODERATOR NOTE: The title of this thread has been changed to "Viewliner II Status. Just the Facts." Updates will be made by KnightRail, who will update the status on all 4 types of Viewliner II car types.

Thank you Steve for getting this started and thank you KnightRail for your updates.

In case you lose track, you can always bring this list upto date by taking a peak at Dave Warner's ABTN page on OTOL:

http://on-track-on-line.com/amtkrinf-amtrakbythenumbers.shtml

Look at the Viewliner section of the tables, and you can see the gory details about manufacture release and acceptance in service dates for each car. Unfortunately, no actual entry in service date, which is typically a while after acceptance.

Dave diligently updates it at least once a month, and sometimes more often with all these gory details.

Now that 97 is out of the yard, we've hit a landmark. All eastern trains normally equipped with diners operating on the calendar day of 11/23 were equipped with Viewliner dining cars.

Here is our 11/23 scorecard:

68000 Albany: CAF
68001 Annapolis: 19(23)
68002 Atlanta: 98(23)
68003 Augusta: 97(22)
68004 Baton Rouge: 20(23)
68005 Boston: Shopped
68006 Charleston: 97(23)
68007 Columbia: 19(22)
68008 Columbus: Protect NYP
68012 Harrisburg: Protect HIA
68013 Hartford: NYP off 98(22)

Crescent sets:
19(22) 68007 Columbia

19(23) 68001 Annapolis

20(22) 8400 Indianapolis
20(23) 68004 Baton Rouge

Silver Meteor sets:
97(22) 68003 Augusta
97(23) 68006 Charleston
98(22) 68013 Hartford
98(23) 68002 Atlanta

I suppose the next landmark will be the day when the 8400 isn't in the mix which should occur mid Dec.
