So this is an all new model of a baggage car (not just another paint job on the older Kato baggage car)?  Sweet!
Phase III is my favorite - I'm glad Amtrak brought it back, although I'm not a big fan of the new logo. I prefer the old simple black Helvetica lettering.

This is outside my era, but I think it will have wide appeal given they can run all across the country on modern-era layouts.

It had been very quiet in 2018 from Kato with lots of re-releases, so it's great to see some new tooling from them.

Also outside my era, but we may benefit when our more modern brethren buy these and divest themselves of their "obsolete" heritage fleet baggage cars and coaches.
