Typical Amtrak commuter train from the northeast corrider, in a Phase III Iivery. Consist includes an F40-ph locomotive, bar/grill car, and 2 Budd coaches. The dark gray car platforms were what was available in LDD, but will be replaced with gray in the build.
About this creation
An EMD-F40ph Diesel Locomotive. The high-frequency whine of the engine gained them the nickname "screamers"
Interior shot of the locomotive, including the 16-cylinder diesel engine and the engineer's station.
The Bar/Grill car.

Fridge and sink in the back of the kitchen.
Exterior shot of a Budd Amfleet II coach. Updated with the new version of LDD to Phase IV Livery, and a more prototypical shape
They still run the Budd coaches on commuter trains in the Northeast Corridor. Some have even been updated to the Phase V Acela paint scheme. Alas, the f40's are a thing of the past. some have been converted to cab/baggage cars, but the powerplants were prone to non-workage. I only see Genesis locomotives and the occasional AE7 any more...
