Coach section of the combined City of Los Angeles/City of St. Louis/Challenger at San Bernardino.

The coach section included two dome-coaches and the newly-modernized buffet-lounge (UP 4051) shown at the right side of the above photo. Five of these buffet-lounge cars (UP 4050-54) had been rebuilt by the UP from 3600-series diners in the spring of 1964 and placed into service on #103 and #104 just before Memorial Day, in time to help provide additional food and beverage service on the expanded summer consists. The UP train was just departing as the Santa Fe Grand Canyon arrived on the left behind five F-units. The Grand Canyon was due in at 3:40 PM.
