Itís being leased by CP for use by West Coast Express crews laying over between trains. Their usual accommodations are being disrupted during construction of the Canada Line.

Can anyone direct me to some photos of these cars?  I know nothing about them other than they were purchased for the Hudson Bay Service.  Apparently they didn't work out.  Does anyone know why?  Any information is appreciated.  
 
It is a shame to see good rolling stock that could be put to use sitting idle.  Could Via use these cars anywhere else?
