IAIS business cars - former KCS?

It would appear so, but I wanted to ask the KCS braintrust.

I believe they're just visiting. Those are buisness train cars from KCS and that observation car is the KAYSEE, which is just about the only true KCS passenger cars still owned by KCS. It was actually never used in passenger service, but as a buisness car. I wouldn't imagine they'd let that one go!
See! That there's yer problem!

Excuse me?

Kay-See sits landlocked on a patio at the KCS corporate headquarters, clearly visible from Broadway in KC. It's under a roof to boot.

No, excuse me. I stand corrected. I've never been to KCS HQ, and I guess all I really know about KCS is limited to the Beaumont/Port Arthur area. However, I suppose that only leaves one other authentic car. That would be the Tolmak. After another review of the photo and comparison to photos of both the Kay-See and the Tolmak, one can conclude that it is neither. So, without making some phone calls, I can't tell you a dern thing about what they're doing out there! HA!
