Oh darn, jis--you posted before I got a chance to say that I figured it out all by myself! :giggle:
 
I had forgotten where I had seen it, but you're right--it was when Amtrak announced the proposed car names.
 
Doing it in alphabetical order was fair and logical.
 
It is also the reason that we all now remember that Annapolis is the capital of Maryland, since we've seen that car a lot. :) (Although I don't remember seeing Albany--do they go to their part of the country if possible?)

 
 
 
Albany is still sitting at the CAF factory, awaiting repairs/renovation.

So other than 69002, every V-II that has been delivered has entered service?
