Amtrak’s Midnight Blue Unit Now on the Road

April 27, 2021

Amtrak’s one-off Midnight Blue livery is now in revenue service on P42DC No. 100.

The unit was released over the weekend from the Beech Grove shops in suburban Indianapolis and ferried to Chicago on Monday on the westbound Cardinal.

No. 100 was added to the Cardinal in Indianapolis along with a  baggage car, Superliner sleeping car, coach, and coach-baggage that had just been rebuilt at Beech Grove.

The Midnight Blue livery is one of a handful that Amtrak is creating to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
