Princess’ cars operate in five car sets, lettered A through E, in order. They are arranged so the location of kitchens and dining rooms makes serving meals easier and more efficient. Princess’ cars operate at the end of the Alaska Railroad’s Denali Star passenger train between Anchorage and Fairbanks, AK.

Cars 7088 and 7089 are designated as D cars. They were built in 1999, and are the only cars in the Princess fleet to be constructed at CRM’s Ft. Lupton plant. The kitchen is on the leading end of the car, with the dining room at the back, adjacent to the dining room in the trailing E cars, 7084 and 7085. Like the other cars in the Princess fleet, the 7088 and 7089 seat 88 passengers upstairs, and 32 in the dining area.

The D cars will receive a general refitting and renewal during the 2005-2006 winter off-season, which will include new interior upholstery, seating and décor, and new exterior paint. It is expected that the work is to be performed by Colorado Railcar in Ft. Lupton.
