During its beginnings, Amtrak inherited its passenger cars from other railroads. Old, steam heated and in dire need of upgrades, Amtrak set out to replace these cars in 1973 with the purchase of the first Amfleet cars from Budd. This initial batch of 492 cars were the Amfleet I - with a door and vestibule on either end (unlike their single-doored successor), these cars fell into a few different varieties but essentially broke down into coach and dinette variants. Despite the introduction of their newer cousins, Amfleet I's are still in use by Amtrak, primarily for shorter distance routes.
This set is a two-pack of new-tooling Amfleet I cars in Amtrak's most modern paint scheme.
- 1 x Amfleet I Coach Amtrak Phase VI #82039
- 1 x Amfleet I Coach Amtrak Phase VI #82755
Both cars in this set have professionally installed 11-211 version 2 Interior Lighting Kits with LED for ready to run lighting. As these sets are made to order please allow for additional time (commonly less than 1 week) when purchasing these items.
Officially licensed by Amtrak. Amtrak and Amfleet are registered service marks of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation.
