Downeast Scenic also got a ballast car.

Are you referring to DSRX 46? They've had that car a while. I don't know its heritage.

They got a second car with the plow.

The owner had a sign to that effect on display inside his car during the AAPRCO convention's first night car party at Portland ME on 9/22/2014. I believe it is the only former B&M passenger car that is currently certified for mainline service on Amtrak and Via Rail Canada.
SALISBURY BEACH has been sold to the Reading, Blue Mountain and Northern. Some of us current/former private car owners are wondering how they intend to utilize an Amtrak certified sleeping car.
