Kato - Amtrak Coach Set in the Rainbow Era Schemes - 2023-08-01

Like its locomotives, all of Amtrak’s rolling stock was inherited from predecessor railroads such as Penn Central. Since there wasn’t time enough to implement uniform branding on Amtrak’s fleet come May 1st, 1971, most trains were comprised of varied rolling stock from multiple railroads resulting in a colorful, or rainbow-like appearance. By 1972, Amtrak developed its Phase I livery and began repainting its fleet of heritage coaches, however due to the size and service demand of the fleet, this process took several years causing Amtrak’s “rainbow era” to last well into the decade. To replicate this colorful time period, Kato USA will be releasing an 8-car set featuring a combination of Amtrak Phase I and Penn Central coaches with optional pre-installed lighting!  

This 8 car set goes with the EMD E8A locomotives below.

 ...And the National Railroad Passenger Corporation known as Amtrak is about to take over commercial rail travel in the United States. Having a fleet comprised entirely of inherited locomotives and rolling stock, Amtrak had former Pennsylvania/Penn Central EMD E8A #4316 painted into a special livery to commemorate their first day of operations. Once more uniform branding was developed, this locomotive was renumbered to 322 and continued to serve Amtrak until it’s retirement in 1981.
