This thing is atrocious! It looks like a really poorly done model train.

Yeah. That paint scheme was just as atrocious the first time around, though.

Other than too much black and not enough red on the nose, I like it. The original is still my favorite Amtrak scheme. None of the Amtrak schemes are particularly good but I prefer the red nose to the others.

Absolutely not enough red on the nose, they need to use mine:

Wish they would go back to phase 4, it was the best looking paint on the Genesis units.

Question for all: As they were done on the P42, which one is your favorite?

For me, it would be Phase II or III, but I think its Phase III. AMTK 145, uh huh.

Phase IV has been my favorite so far. I haven't seen F40 406 yet but I think it is safe to say that will become my favorite.

On the 145 and 822, why didn't they paint the can and nose silver, like the real Phase III Genesis engines? I think the black looks okay but it is completely inaccurate regarding past GEs. Sure, the F40s had black cabs, but the Genesis engines did not, so why didn't they just paint them in the old scheme?

By the way, Phase IV is the best in my opinion.

Maybe they will do one in the "genesis" version of phase 3? With or without "the fade". Why not?

Phase 5 was always goofy looking, I dont know why they continue this crap, they gave up phase 5 on cars thank god.

Here's Phase Six, which will be announced on Train Day... all P42s will receive this treatment (inlcuding the heritage ones).

Well, call me devil’s advocate, but I like the Phase V scheme best.
The previous are awesome, true, but a little too “flashy” for my liking.
The V has a certain elegance of its own. Oh yeah, and I like the current logo better then the pointless arrow.
Phase IV looks awesome, but I mean, look at that beauty by the side !

Heritage units 822 and 406 were chillin' together today in Chicago. Apparently they went out on the eastbound Hoosier State.

Next do one like this! This thing is hideous! This might have been worse than the PC solid black scheme.
