Am I the only one that thinks this is a little tacky? Will Amtrak's power and rolling stock become mobile billboards like Portland MAX trains and city busses??


It is kind of weird looking, but I think it's kind of neat to see something different on the cascades and that gold and black really looks neat


Just my opinion; Tastefully done for public regional and cultural events such as the King Tut exhibit I don't mind. Dress them up like candy bars, pop cans or big corporate stores, that to me would not be good.


That is an awesome looking unit! Too bad it will stay out west. I missed the Amtrak P42DC that was wrapped for Toyota a few years ago too.

It's advertising the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle.


Oh my gosh a Yardmaster
Lets look at it from a non railfans view point and it's advertising dollars to AMTK or would you rather complain about paying 10 cents a gallon more for gas.


Marty, it runs on steam!
I saw it last weekend at Centralia, WA but it was pulling away as I was grabbing the camera. Looks fine to me.
