  The Exhibit Train has two locomotives with historic paint schemes and uses three renovated Heritage baggage cars to display educational exhibits focusing on various aspects of our business. Displays include vintage advertising, past menus and dinnerware, period uniforms, photographs, and other items of memorabilia from Amtrak’s creation in 1971 to a model of today’s modern-sleeping accommodations and high-speed rail service displays. Interactive displays include railroad horns, trivia questions, workable signals and an engineer’s stand. There is no charge for the public to tour the train.

In addition, as part of the train display, the Amtrak Veteran’s Locomotive will be one of the two locomotives on the Exhibit Train, showcasing Amtrak’s continued effort to support our nation’s service men and women. The locomotive has a red, white and blue paint scheme with 50 reflective stars around the bottom and supports the company’s hiring initiative goal of recruiting twenty five percent of new hires from the military by 2015.
