    Just got one, hope to get some passenger cars soon. I also noticed USA Trains has a Amtrak caboose, lol, which is weird because I don't think Amtrak ever serviced cabooses. Anyways, I hope to get at least two Amtrak Passenger cars soon, maybe some more passenger cars and the caboose in the future. Just hope it wont cost me an arm and a leg. :( Anyways here is what it looks like: [​IMG]

    Nice looking engine. Amtrak did have cabooses, but they were orange and in MofW service.
