Amtrak P42 #42 - Veterans Salute

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War and honor those that have served, Amtrak painted a locomotive red, white and blue with a specially designed “America’s Railroad Salutes Our Veterans” logo and 50 stars around the bottom to honor the anniversary. Locomotive 42, in celebration of Amtrak’s 42nd year of service, was painted as part of a regularly scheduled upgrade at the Amtrak Beech Grove Indiana maintenance facility and will be used to pull trains in revenue service on routes throughout the country. The themed locomotive is part of Amtrak’s commitment to The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, the country’s official program to honor a specific group of veterans who saw the nation through one of the most challenging missions ever faced – the Vietnam War. Directed by Congress, the Commemoration is veteran-focused, hometown-centric and currently includes more than 4,600 commemorative partners who will be hosting events throughout the country.
