And for the paint people I think this is now technically "Phase VI" ... So off to the races on a decade long discussion of that one ...

I just don't understand it.. Does anyone think they'll adapt the Chargers by removing the fins on the Cali units and matching the striping?The livery on the back of the charger doesn't match up with the rest of the coaches. Same thing applies for the CALDOT coaches. In terms of aesthetically pleasing locomotive and coach designs, either the Chargers or the Venture coaches need to go through a major repainting process in order for both of the ends to match up correctly.
Regardless, still very excited to see new cars rolling out. Hopefully for Amtrak proper (and maybe Cascades?) they will have a livery that makes sense for existing chargers or whatever the ALC-42 will look like.
