I like this!
Clem, sometimes I forget your RR is 3 rail. I'm jealous.
I have a little Amtrak equipment. Not shown are a few F40PHs, GGD PS coaches, GGD 4-4-2 sleepers, Lionel 21" dome, K-Line 21" dome, K-line 10-6 sleeper, 4 old aluminum 2 Rail cars that I am working on converting to Heritage coaches in Phase III and a Heritage lounge. I'm also eagerly anticipating my Amfleet and Viewliner arrival too!
Happy 50th Amtrak! It is well deserved.
Jonathan, is that the Williams engine? How do you like it?
Yes. This is a Williams. It is a great runner. I painted it myself in 2011 before anyone offered the heritage schemes. It has had a little work done one it as well. I stole the pilot off one of my Metroliner cars to move the front truck forward to be closer to the prototype. It was a fun little project. No frills locomotive. It is slightly different in proportion to the MTH P42, but I think the Williams model was based on the P32.

Prototype photos next. These are all my photos. I don't have any of my slides from the late 80's and 90's scanned yet though. One of these days!

Where does the former PRR 4927 reside these days in your photo?
The black paint Amtrak scheme certainly enhances the sense that this is a final resting place!
Illinois Railway Museum now in Pennsy 5-stripe. Normally resides in one of the barns. My picture was taken shortly after it arrived back in the early 80's.
I only have this Amtrak HHP8 starter set (plus one K-Line dome-observation):
I have added the two-car add-on set plus the cab control car; at first, I thought that the short (18') would bother me but it really does not. The only problem for me will be two-railing them.
