Model Amtrak consists and car couplings

Recommended Posts

For those who have models of Amtrak trains:

 

Are any of your consists set up so that the cars are not only coupled together, but they also appear as if the end-vestibules are joined together? (The area where passengers and crew can walk between cars?) I ask because in the Amtrak model videos I've seen, the cars are coupled but the vestibule areas are not.

 

Thanks!

I am building the Southwest Chief using KATO HO scale cars. And 2  tsunami sound cars decoders ( baggage car and diner ). I am pleased with KATO supplied Kinematic Couplers. My question is are you using some type of Super Detail  diaphragms ?

Thanks

Great model and video!

But not realistic:

Train is going fast.

Private cars frowned on.

Train not sitting on siding waiting for 3 slow moving freights.

No negative comments by members (until now).
