N Amtrak Amfleet I & II Coaches

Modern passenger railroading reaches a whole new level

Amfleet I: During its beginnings, Amtrak inherited its passenger cars from other railroads. Old, steam heated and in dire need of upgrades, Amtrak set out to replace these cars in 1973 with the purchase of the first Amfleet cars from Budd. This initial batch of 492 cars were the Amfleet I – with a door and vestibule on either end (unlike their single-doored successor), these cars fell into a few different varieties but essentially broke down into coach and dinette variants. Despite the introduction of their newer cousins, Amfleet I’s are still in use by Amtrak, primarily for shorter distance routes.

Amfleet II: Introduced in 1981, the Amfleet II (sometimes affectionately called Amtube by enthusiasts due to its distinct, rounded form) was introduced right in the middle of the EMD F40PHs life cycle in Amtrak service. Boasting larger windows and more comfortable seating conditions, the Amfleet II was designed for longer distance travel than its predecessor, the Amfleet I, while still retaining the versatility that its single-level height could provide over its taller, double-decker Superliner brethren.
