    I for one think the F125s look better, but hey, the chargers are built here in Sac and I know one of the Siemens VPs that made the happen. So I'm glad to see them do well.

    Well, I would not exactly rate these as being handsome beasts. But they will be interesting for many railfans.

    I don't understand why they aren't in phase V like the p42s. That is one of the worst paint schemes I have seen in a while, and with the Viewliner baggage cars in IIIb as well, the Amtrak fleet is starting to look a little mismatched. Almost like a reverse Rainbow era...

    An interesting observation. After taking another look, I cannot disagree. :)
