Photos and video show my MTH Premier Amtrak P42 Genesis #104 with a 2-car consist on my 10’-by-5’ layout. The locomotive is an older PS2 5-Volt model with a BCR. It hadn’t been run in years. I cleaned the wheels and pickup rollers and off it went. Amtrak passes through small towns in Connecticut, such as on my layout. The consists are two or three cars between New Haven and Springfield, Massachusetts, although the P42 locomotives and cars now have a newer livery. It seems to me that I see very few threads about Amtrak models on the Forum.

Original Post

I enjoyed reading about your layout in the recent issue of OGR. Watching your Amtrak P42 with its train running on your layout is like standing at track side in a small town. I also like just watching trains running through nice scenery. I remember when Amtrak's SDP-45's had the "Sweeping Arrow" logo. That one will always be my sentimental favorite.

This shows my MTH Premier Amtrak P42 Genesis #202 with another 2-car consist on my 10’-by-5’ layout. The locomotive is a PS3 model running conventionally. The engine and the cars have the modern liveries currently seen on shuttle trains between New Haven and Springfield, Massachusetts. Photos and video by:
