amtrak diner #8528 Heritage : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

On August 28,00 my friend and I on a visit from Olympia, Washington rode the "Silver Palm" from TPA to MIA and back. We were pleasantly suprised to ride in Diner #8528 both ways. Can anyone tell me the heritage of this car? Thanks Bob B.
