Found this neat old photo of a Visa-Dome railcar named the Silver Meteor.  It is one of only seven that graced the rear of every California Zephyr train.  In the teaser of Vote of Confidence you see the interior of another one of the seven, named the Silver Crescent, as C&T bust a rolling house of ill repute.  This is railroading's finest example of Streamliner Era cars.  It was really traveling in style.  The Silver Crescent is on display at Miami's Gold Coast Railroad Museum.  It's a shame that, unlike Europe, this country no longer uses railroads as a major part of its transportation network.

Nice Jim - Thankyou for posting :D

Quite an uninspiring episode of Vice - production seemed tired and lost the spark of the "Like A Hurricane" and "Love at First Sight" / "Rock and a Hard Place" episodes. This early aired 1988 episode was the first and last episode directed by Randy Roberts.One of Roberts earliest directing roles and I think it shows here -

Larry Pine who plays Tommy Pearce stole the show here.

The end scene was quite interesting for me - with most of the episode shot at 400 South Pointe Drive near Inlet Bvld - the colors of the walls in this end scene when Pearce "returns" match the walls seen earlier in the episode. :done:

This was posted on Facebook today by a mutual friend of miamijimf and myself - it shows a nice old aerial of Government Cut and 400 South Pointe Dr which we saw in this episode.

We see this area also in "Love at First Sight" and also we see The Corsair from "Death and the Lady".:hippie:

Not the best episode - however found this shot Today from a 2011 vacation of 400 South Pointe Drive (right of picture) featured extensively in "Vote of Confidence".

The area just out of the picture next to Smith & Wollensky restaurant in South Pointe Park was seen in "The Savage" and the movie @miamijimf recommends "The Perez Family":hippie:
