Just think, what if the LD's he simply can't whack, were to be converted to Single Level, using the apparently iminent car order, and all Superliners retired (off to spend their Golden Years at Corridor Capital's "Coston Farm" ), with only one line per set, there would be enough Viewliners, on hand or on order, to cover all existing LD's. 70 V-Bags covers all trains with such, so should 75 V-Snoozes.
