I recall them as full-length or nearly-full-length, with all dining upstairs, like Superliner and SF HighLevel diners, and the lower level kitchen, storage, and transition-pasasge. If my memory is mistaken, please correct me. Thank you.

And, I just learned the other day playing with my HO BLI models, there were two different dome coaches. One type was just a coach, and the other had a conductor's office tucked in one corner. So I guess if one counts the floor plan as a difference, then technically the CZ had four different types of dome cars in each train.....
P.S. I don't see anyone mentioning the SP 3/4 domes. I know nothing about them. Were they run in trains with other types of domes?
