Intriguing extrusion.  Does it have a prototype?

Bob2, yes, both cars were actual Amtrak cars. OK Engines got the windows stamped very accurately on the CVSR cafe car, but not exact on the Amtrak Lounge/ Dorm.  Both Amtrak cars were attempts to duplicate prototypes, Christine's placement of the AMTRAK on the blind areas of the window band is incorrect on one side.  Amtrak placed the word mid way between the two closest windows vs. centered in the middle of the car as Christine did.  Honest and rare error on her part.  I will live with it.  The all caps AMTRAK is unusual to the car and I liked it, adds to the Amtrak mix of things. Here's a link to see the prototypes:
