Vista Dome

What does "observation car" mean when it comes to a train?

It is the last car and it has a round end with panoramic windows looking out the back. On the California Zephyr, circa 1962 when my family rode from Chicago, Illinois to Oakland, California there were 4 types of cars, sleepers, vista domes, dining and finally the observation car. And I think there was a baggage car as well, come to think of it. The observation car had a bar. In 1970, I was privledged to ride the Shriner's train from San Jose, California to Reno, Nevada for a weekend gambling trip (my in-laws invited us along). I made great use of the bar in the observation car... I will remember the California Zephyr for as long as I live. I was 15, and I think I stayed awake for the whole 96 hours (4 days, 3 nights) of the trip... We came down the west side of the Rockies at night and the resister banks on top of the locomotives glowed a dull red from all the dynamic braking they had to use.
