Kato USA Inc Rainbow-Era 8-Car Set Amtrak Mix
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 eet 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 eet of heritage coaches, however due to the size and service demand of the eet, 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
