The Golden Gate Railroad Museum in San Francisco is the proud owner of the Silver Rifle. This dome saw Amtrak service as #9454 until the early 1980s, when it was stored. GGRM is currently in the process of raising the funds and finding the pieces to restore the car, and the following items/funds are needed (if you can help, please contact them at the email address on their web site):

They are also looking for other pieces that have been stolen over the years. If you know of a good source of Budd parts, please contact Mike Mangini.

We hope to bring you photos of the restoration process as it happens. In the meantime, you can visit the GGRM Silver Rifle site as well.
