It's 1975 and the Amfleet are brand spanking new....And
dig them new uniforms!!
Oh them Amfleet were a wonderful sight back in 1975, when they were brand new, even though their bodies were constructed to resemble a friggin' airplane fuselage and their amcafe/amclub series of cars helped sound the final death knell for dining car service and honest to goodness parlor cars on the Northeast Corridor.
Amfleet, F-40's and E-60's would be the workhorses of the Northeast Corridor for some time to come, and about 1/4 of a century after the above photo was taken, America would finally get it's first "high speed train."
