Description

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.

Set Includes:
1 x Amfleet I Coach Amtrak Phase VI #82039
1 x Amfleet I Cafe Amtrak Phase VI #48159

    Kato Amtrak amfleet cars

    These cars are amazing in detail! I cannot find anything incorrect about them. They are also setup from the factory to accept a lighting kit in each car. They are highly recommended!
