HO Scale Kato 35-6211 Amtrak Viewliner II Baggage Car 61006 Phase III
The Viewliner II is Amtraks newest addition to its fleet of single-level rolling stock, with planned rollouts of Baggage cars, diners, and Sleeping cars all expected to enter standard service through the next few years. Right now Amtrak is operating 55 Baggage cars in this new style, wearing a special Phase III heritage paint scheme that combines the classic red-white-and-blue stripes with Amtraks new modern logo and the phrase Amtrak America. While the Viewliner and Amfleet single-level cars are typically designed for use throughout the Eastern United States on long distance trains, the new Viewliner II Baggage cars are also used on Supliner trains, making them extremely versatile and a great addition to a model railroaders HO scale Amtrak fleet!
