see this message on another board, its two P42's with plastic film on them advertizing the Toyata Tundra for a few months.



Someone has just posted pictures of the 84 in the RR Picture Archives....

Ah, I see my photos are getting some more publicity, even though retarded Railpictures.net rejected them. (The "someone" there is me! :-D ) RP has gotten more retarded lately...Reject anything cloudy on the spot, no matter how rare it is... :(

that sucks. :( I think all your pictures on RP rule, no matter what they think. :wink:

FYI that's a Toyota Tundra, the fullsize pickup. Tacoma is the little one. Also, the P42 looks good with the light blue background rather than the drab grey standard. I think the smartest thing Amtrak did looks-wise was to emphasize blue and make the red an accent stripe at the bottom - it looks especially nice on Amfleet cars.

There's a shot of it on Railpictures now. This is on the Texas Eagle, which is the reason it was on the SW Chief from LA. I'm not too mad that someone else got the first shot of it on RP. Nick lives in Joliet and has many more opportunities to catch it in sun, but I may go down there sometime to see it. :-D

It is a nice scheam I've seen both of them. 115 is running on Eagle/City of New Orelands and 84 is running on the Flordia Trains/Capital Limited/Regional Trains south of Washington. I saw 84 at Joliet with Nick that day.

I saw a P42 with a Tacoma (at least I think it was, it had a truck) on its sides on the 392 this past Sunday. :wink: I think it was the 115.
