Well, to be Scrupulously Fair, here's a shot of an Amtrak interior from the 70s.The Colors remind me of the 70s!
I remember those Amtrak 70s Colors well! ( no wonder we drank so much on the Trains! lol)Well, to be Scrupulously Fair, here's a shot of an Amtrak interior from the 70s. View attachment 18716
I'd imagine that fabric was named something along the lines of "Earth Tone Vomit".
But, perhaps, the retro interior is intentional. We'll know for sure if the Midwest states introduce a "new" uniform for all conductors and service personnel... View attachment 18717
Interesting. Some previous moves like this behind freight power have had the single flashing freight-style FRED attached, but this one did indeed have the markers illuminated - especially visible on the nighttime YouTube footage.Don't they have to have the markers lit up?
Ok. I just saw an interview with someone from IDOT. He said that since the café cars will not arrive until 2022, the initial consist will be 4 Venture coaches and a legacy café/business car. He also said that they will be going to the Lincoln Service first. That makes sense, given that it is the most travelled of the Midwest routes (except the Hiawatha, which is getting its own separate fleet).So are they going to just slap those cars on existing Amtrak consists with older cars? Or will they at least use the new cars for entire train sets?
