A little-known fact is a planned second order for
additional Budd-build equipment
to finish re-equipping The Dominion as well as The Atlantic
A later addition would have been for five parlor cars likely for
popular Montreal - Ottawa service. Totalling 62 cars.
This order was to include 30 coaches (52 smoker
seats and 16 regular seats),
and 9 dining cars (48 seats) as well as two new car types:
18 Dome-Sleeper 4 double bedroom (connecting),
4 bedroom (lower berth only), 4 roomettes and 24 seats in dome.
Plus, 5 Buffet-Parlor 29 seats. Alternative 26 seats and 2 luggage
More baggage-dormitory cars were also planned and
not included in
second document likely because they were identical to existing cars.
Note: The new dome-sleeper was added as it had been
there was too little dome seating on The Canadian!
For Tourist class consideration of ordering Budd
Siesta coaches sleeping 32
(similar to Pullman Slumbercoaches) was not included since tourist
was declining and uncertainty of its future resulted in the decision
not to order them.
Instead, 22 heavyweight G class sleeping cars were modernized and
designated as U class cars.
A grand total of 84 additional cars would have been slightly less
than 50% of the original order.
