Thanks for catching that for us. With all the excitement about the new locomotives, we made a mistake. We've updated the photo and done some additional digging to tell you more about the equipment featured in it. You'll notice that there's only one coach and several baggage cars. That indicates that the train was likely the Mail Express that Amtrak operated from Springfield, Conn., to Washington, D.C., from 1984 until the 2000s.
What memories do you have of the AEM-7? We'd love to hear them!

With the launch of our new
single-level long distance equipment – the “Viewliner II”, Amtrak is also
launching Amtrak America, a brand that will encompass all that is great
about Amtrak’s long-haul trains, including those with sleeper class service.
Amtrak’s route brands will continue, and this brand will make the conversation
and overall service offerings clear to our customers and stakeholders.
Amtrak America will utilize our Phase Three striping on the
single-level long distance cars as a tribute to our heritage. The first cars
released from production will also carry Amtrak’s heritage logo in honor of our
past. Amtrak’s current logo will return on the standard production cars.
