Westours 554 "Eklutna" leaving Denali in July 1988.

Westours dome HALX 554 "Eklutna" is part of this Alaska RR consist leaving Denali in late July 1988. This dome was originally purchased by the ATSF for the San Francisco Chief in May 1957. Subsequently it went to the Auto Train and was twice refurbished for Holland-America's McKinley Explorer entering service there in 1987 (30 years after its initial SF Chief assignment). It has since been replaced by a new "Eklutna" HALX 1054 built by Colorado Railcar in Fort Lupton, CO.
