Chestnut-Stripe Streamliner Sets
The chestnut brown stripe streamliners were made only in 1954.
They are the rarest of the 96x streamliners even though they were used in two sets,
the K5469WT Silver Flash, and the K5418T Black Diamond.

They were used in two sets:
#K5469WT Silver Flash, pulled by the rare #4778 Silver Flash AA Alco set,
comprised the #960, #961, and #963, but no vista dome car.
Until I get a chestnut 961 coach, my red-stripe coach will have to stand in.
#K5418T Black Diamond was pulled by the #303 Atlantic steam engine.
It comprised the #960, #962, and #963, but no coach car.

Until I get a chestnut 962 dome car, my red-stripe dome car will have to stand in.
