3 Amfleet Cars Sold to Private Company

Three Amfleet cars have been purchased by excursion operator Rail Excursion Management Company.

The two coaches and a café car are the first Amfleet cars to be acquired by a private owner.

The Budd Company built 642 Amfleet cars between 1975 and 1983, using a design that was pioneered by the Metroliners.

The initial order of 492 cars was finished in 1977. Amfleet equipment continues to be widely used by corridor service trains in the East and Midwest.

Some second generation Amfleet cars designed to be used on long-distance trains and can be found on the Lake Shore Limited, Crescent, Palmetto, Silver Meteor, Silver Star and Cardinal.

Railexco said its Amfleet cars will be used by a Midwest tourist railroad that it did not identify.
