Weekend Event: Railways

Budd dome cars could not be used on railways in the east because clearances in tunnels were lower. So Pullman-Standard built Strata-Domes for the Baltimore and Ohio and Budd built them for the Chesapeake and Ohio. They had a lower profile and a different contour than Budd's standard domes. They also included spotlights on the roof for night time viewing.
