For that, I'd need be trackside for whenever #4(31) makes the scene today.Southern California Regional Rail Authority. Some quick Googling also shows a possible retrofit of front-facing cameras in Chicago... but I doubt you'd need to go there for that work.
Possibly Beech Grove landed a contract to overhaul those LACMTA cars (or whatever that agency is now known as).

One car is the Slerper Berlin; the other two - former UP - a Sleeper and a Dome Obs with an Open Platform. These cars are liveried much like the Berlin in Wagon Lit Blue and Cream.
