MTH Amtrak F40PH 20-20682: Amtrak Blue Does Not Match Previous Amtrak Diesels, Cars, etc.

How about MTH opens one they have in stock and compare it to their own cars they have released in Phase IV paint.

Someone at MTH must be aware or does not care to look. 

Baby blue is not correct for phase IV. After years of people telling them their blue used on earlier phases was too dark, they swapped the wrong phase!

Phase IV is darker blue.

How can anyone pre-order cars now in Phase IV not knowing what they will receive? 

MTH needs to reply, period.

Either say it was a mistake, or say that the rest of phase IV production going forward will be this new color blue.....

or just hope it goes away?

Joe and Marty.  I live down the road from the Amtrak engine facility.  My intention was to get a real photo to match the photo the poster was going to hopefully put up.  That is off the table.  I am pulling all my comments from this post and will be more careful getting involved with posts like this in the future.

Sorry Marty, I didn't know why you chose this post, although the originator has since vanished. So for that, you are correct.

However if anyone from MTH would take a look, I'd be curious to see what they would reply. 

It does take some reading to understand the issue

On this F40PHR, Phase III is shown here on what were the most commonly seen locomotives running on Amtrak for many years until their eventual replacement by the GE Genesis units (P42DC, etc...). Note the brighter color blue used on the F40's compared to the P42's as shown in the top photo

Joe,  the forum has many of these people who like to complain about a product and when asked to put up a picture they fade away.    Do they really own the locomotive or is this another undocumented shot at MTH?

Yes, but I posted pics of the actual engine. I support MTH as much as I can. There are some that take shots at me for doing that. I'm used to it.

This color blue is so far off for phase IV that it has to be a mistake. The funny thing that was already mentioned, is it appears that they just got the phases wrong. The blue that was used would match a different phase where MTH used the wrong one in the past.
