A view of the Sundowner coach from the no. 1 end. This coach was a gift to the then Mt Newman Mining Company from Amax who were a partner in the joint venture to celebrate the first 100 million tonnes of ore from Newman in 1974 (have since sold their part).
The coach once belonged to the Burlington Northern railroad and was part of a railcar set called the General Pershing Zephyr which ran from St Louis to Kansas City. It was built in 1939.
