Back when Amtrak was formed and they acquired most of the operating RR's passenger cars. A Rainbow Era passenger train passes through on the Seattle & Yakima RR.

A great looking consist with a nice mix. I like the C&O coaches with the train.

The real cars lived quite a while with Amtrak, once they converted them to 480v HEP. Their Heritage fleet was impressive. None are left at this point, as far as I know...

Huh. I never saw an Amtrak other than than the tri-state area's red, white and blue striped cars.
Amtrak formed in 1971. Depending on your age, you may have not seen the earlier trains that had a mix of various roads, mainly in the early 1970’s. They didn’t last long as common, older cars were culled out in favor of Budd stainless cars.
