The first long-distance route to incorporate double-deck cars in a streamliner consist, the 'El Capitan' debuted its new Hi-Level Passenger Cars in 1956. Developed jointly between The Budd Company and AT&SF Railroad, the Hi-Level cars offered Americans something unique and innovative, while the upper-level seating offered a quieter ride and panoramic views.

K-LINE's fleet of Hi-Level cars feature all the amenities of the original coach cars, including upper-level doors and vestibules at both ends of the car to connect with other Hi-Level equipment. The functional 'step down' coach is prototypically designed with a lower level entrance at one end to provide access from single-level cars to upper-level coach seating. Acquired by Amtrak in May 1971, the popular Santa Fe Hi-Levels were the inspiration for Amtrak's new fleet of Superliner cars.
