Neato! That's a lot of pinstripes.

These will be perfect to go with some SDPs.

Awesome.  How much mixing up in early Amtrak consists can we do with these?  Time to watch my Panhandle videos again.

One to two years out on those.

I agree! I need just a single one for my Amtrak 40th Anniversary train. Still need a single 10-6 Sleeper as well, but that's a different story.

Amfleet were and still are HEP, so they would rarely mix with other phase 1 cars.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

I think that the the earliest paint scheme for those was Phase II.

Hmm, this has the makings for a 1977 Arrowhead.  Add a sleeper and an F40 and you get the North Star.  I think I'm in.

One question though, is what Kato doing really Phase I paint?  I thought phase I had the arrows at both ends like this:





I think I want what they show on the artwork with the single arrow, so I'm just curious as to the naming.

Anyone?

Second question, could the Amfleet cars be pulled by the SDP40F since they were HEP and the  SDP40F wasn't?

If not, I need to wait for Phase III Amfleets or Phase II F40PH's.
