I have been wondering on the new train sets for the midwest, what is happening with the Business class which is usually connected to the cafe car? Are they producing a new car to match the other coaches or going to just haul and old business car?

Here is what the IDOT order looks like:

The Lounge and the Business Cafe married pairs will arrive later. Initially the Coaches will be used with Horizon BC/Cafe cars apparently. Of course with the current delays the interim might be shortened than was originally planned. Don;t know for sure.
