The Silver Feather saw service as AutoTrain 461, then on Amtrak (# unknown) into the late 80s. It is believed that Texas Southern and Transcisco had the car, as well. In 1993, it became a part of Washington Central's dinner train, renumbered back to 812, and in May 1997 it and several other cars moved to BCRail's Starlight Dinner Train, where it was renamed Moonglow.
