Amtrak's Niagara Rainbow is shown in Fort Erie, about to cross the International Bridge from Canada into the USA in September of 1978. An old pair of well-worn EMD E-units are today's power, typical of the early Amtrak-era equipment that was mainly hand-me-down locomotives and passenger cars from railroads wanting out of the passenger train business.

  1. These paint jobs make modern CP look gold coated

  2. You could call them the “Rat Rods” of the train world :)

  3. Great shot – almost incomprehensible now!

    Also amazing that a 7-year-old paint job could look that bad!
