City of Miami  ‘ACL 247’

Florida East Coast, Atlantic Coast Line and the Central of Georgia all contributed coaches to the City of Miami. All are built by Pullman-Standard and were decorated in the chocolate and orange scheme with ‘City of Miami’ in the lettering board. The car owner initials were in black centered above the truck by the door.  All three of these coaches were sold to Amtrak in 1971.

The Illinois Central insisted that cars in their train from other owners were painted in this scheme known as ‘Panama’.  Besides the ACL, FEC and CoGa, other lines that had cars painted in this scheme were: CNW, NYC, NP, PRR, UP and DL&W. But these were usually cars leased for the busy winter season. All were painted in the chocolate and orange with rare exception.

The City of Miami was an all streamline consist early on. Something that was a cut above the competition, (Penny’s Southwind).

There are three road numbers being produced at this time.

See the City of Miami  Coach Fleet 1 for special pricing on all three coaches!

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…
