hey all!

Anyone ever seen one like this? Thinking it might be a custom/repaint...quick googling didn't turn up an amtrak one - but several other roadnames..

don't mind the grime, it is fresh out of storage :)

That's a factory paint job by Mantua. Very nice... minus the lint!

Yep, this is a Mantua GP20....made after they split away from Tyco in the late 70's to start their own company once again. I agree, nice paint job.

That is so surprising- so Mantua went its own way, as did PEMCO. The many lives of Tyco.
Now, does the new Mantua have the MU2; or the same old PT?
