I saw 2 Amtrak painted cars behind the fence this evening at Avalon Rail in West Allis, Wisconsin. Both appeared shiny and fresh paint, like Amtrak locomotive #145. One car reminded me of a 10 & 6 sleeper, the other was like a Santa Fe Hi-Level that was converted to a transition crew sleeper. Sorry, I do not have a camera. Maybe these are prototypes for an order. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
