I once read somewhere about a modern streamlined car that was operated by a major aquarium, though I don't remember who owned it. Probably long retired now.
That may be the Nautilus II, of Chicago's Shedd Aquarium, operated 1959-72. It was built by Pullman as a baggage-tavern-chair car for C&EI in 1946, rebuilt by Thrall in 1959.
This Chicago Tribune article discusses this car and the 
first Nautilus, a 1930 heavyweight.
