Ok

A pessimist sees a dark tunnel

An optimist sees the light at the end of the tunnel

A realist sees a frieght train

An engineer sees three idiots standing on the tracks stairing blankly in space

I have more roadrailers than I'll ever need.  Most are Triple Crown, but let me check it out.

If I have any Amtrak, I'll let you know, we can PM from there.

I would post the link if it were kosher to do so. There's the patched one, yes, but there is definitely a non patched one too. If you search for Amtrak side door trailer, it'll come up. Trailer reporting mark is AMTZ 410092.

I have a saved search for Amtrak to watch for a few harder to find items. I saw at least one Amtrak roadrailer turn up today in my daily email.

Best I can think of is to put a Saved Search on ebay and wait for them to notify you.  I have had reasonable success doing this.  There may be other auction/flea market sites.

Good luck,

Richard

I have been hunting for two more Amtrak roadrailers to fill out the Amtrak train.   It appears Bowser doesnt make any rodrailers any more. Cannt find any in the normal places.   Anybody know where some might be hiding?
