Now I know they've had cab-control cars made out of these things, but this one looks like they just ripped the pans off and rolled.

All the ones I've seen always have that orange and black striping, as opposed to the original metroliner face.

This is wild.

Where the hell have you been....they were seen quite a bit like that. The Vermonters was like that before a rebuild and it came out with the yellow and black hash marks.

Oh wow, I did not know that.

I had only seen them in the Gamblers Express service like that one, but the ones I had seen were always with the hashes.

I've also seen photos of them like that in Springfield, MA before repaints, and also when they were running with the SPV's
