Reportedly Silver Planet was destroyed by fire in Mexico sometime during 2015.

This is a public Yahoo group, so there "should" be no trouble accessing the information. However, with the way Yahoo's development people have been coding the /neo/ system ... who knows?

I have access to the list as linked, and here is the information, combining only the listed information from the two posts (perhaps making this in essence a 'derivative work' for moral concerns), in the original Spanish:

EL NdeM MORELOS #103 (COCHE ESPECIAL DE SCT), (cuando lo estuvimos
remodelando encontramos que en los marcos de sus ventanas aparecia el nombre
"CHICAGO")

EL NdeM 6000 KINKI (PRIMERA ESPECIAL)

EL DORMITORIO 756 OVIEDO

EL DORMITORIO "SAVANNA" #2766 (nunca llego a MEXICO estuvo listo para llegar
pero nunca entro)

llegar pero nunca entro)

EL DORMITORIO "BLUE NOTT" #2505 (nunca llego a MEXICO estuvo listo para

Darn. Was any damage reported to have been done to the other cars stored in the street with the Silver Planet in San Luis Potosi?

I only saw a picture of the Silver Planet with a burned-out dome section. I don't know if any of the other cars were also damaged.

Thanks, Topfuel. I wonder how much structural damage was done to the car. If it got hot enough, and the dome frames started to melt...well, let's not dwell on that, shall we?

Hopefully in the future more info on the extent of the damage will become available.

Google Street View link from December 2015 showing what's left of the Silver Creek International train stored in the street in San Luis Potosi, MX. Silver Planet was stored with these cars a few years ago, but is no longer visible in the street view. The other cars are heavily vandalized. The ex-NYC observation car is gone too.
