A close up of the construction of the coach dome, with its curved windows. The glass was tinted, and the GN took special pains to inform its passengers of the correct method of compensating exposure and color correction for good photographic results. A special brochure with technical discussions and correct filters and type of color film to use was available for all passengers.

The usual configuration of three dome coaches coupled together created an impressive looking train, and indeed the GN promoted that its new edition of the Empire Builder carried more dome seats than any other train of that time. Photo from GNRHS Archives.
